Heritage

“our ‘heritage’ is not a sealed package we pass from hand to hand, without ever opening, but rather a treasure from which we draw by the handful and which by this very act is replenished. Every tradition lives by grace of interpretation, and it is at this price that it continues, that is, remains living.”

 

~ Ricoeur

Quoted in, prolegomena to a carnal hermeneutics, p.62
