Echoes through time: The dogmas of the quiet past

This comes via Execupundit’s excellent Quote of the Day:

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew.”

Abraham Lincoln (1862), Annual Address to Congress
