Transcript Tradition It is only the greatest of men who can walk through this world and make their own traditions. Even they, however, have some knowledge, some history, some precedent to draw from as they chart the uncharted. Tradition is the theme, the line that ties us all together. Without traditions, without a sense of the past, there can be no lessons, no teachers, no learning. Even in a school as young as our University, traditions have taken hold. New ones begin every day. In a sense, we as students are creating traditions even as we learn old ones. We cannot lead our lives solely on traditions; we must move forward with our knowledge and apply it to new situations. We will all face situations where we must draw on what we will learn here: the total lesson a college can teach creates an adult during its rites of passage. If you cannot see where you are going, you have no choice to look where you have been. We, the University students are here to learn what has been and what is, in order to move forward into the world that will soon be ours. Tradition, then, is the sum total of this book. It is the theme that ties this book together. In an increasingly unstable world. It can only be The Line That Ties Us Together helpful to look back at the past and learn how others handled their turbulent worlds. We must learn from their mistakes and try to repeat their successes in order to pass on this world to the next generation. mmmmm 2. 6 — Houstonian 1984
