Quote of the day

“If one desires to master a particular discipline completely, he must make it his aim to sift and supplement what others have contributed to it. Without such an effort, no matter how complete his information may be, he would be a mere carrier of tradition—the lowest rank of all the activities open to a person, and the least significant.”

—Friedrich Schleiermacher, Brief Outline on the Study of Theology (Atlanta: John Knox Press, 1966), §19.
