Quote of the Day

“Heroes can thrive only where ignorance reduces history to mythology. They cannot survive the coldly critical temper of modern thought when it is functioning normally, nor can they be worshipped by a generation which has every facility for determining their foibles and analyzing their limitations.”

-- Reinhold Niebuhr. Key phrase: “... when it is functioning normally.”
