but an openly transgressed custom brings sure punishment.
The penalty may be unfair, unrighteous, illogical, and a cruelty;
no matter, it will be inflicted, just the same.
Certainly, then, there can be but one wise thing
for a visiting stranger to do -
find out what the country's customs are,
and refrain from offending against them.
- Mark Twain

- Ralph Waldo Trine

the fruit will be all the sweeter for this touch of holiness.

for the order lying behind the appearance.

and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,

in a more liberal sense,
and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.

institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times.
- Thomas Jefferson [inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial]
