"Human nature, of course, changes far more slowly than do our external surroundings.
"When new situations arise some persons dig their heels dogmatically into the past and declare that we must hold rigidly to the old rules. Others treat each new situation as if it requires a de novo approach, relying on trial and error as if the past had no value.
Bernard M. Baruch, My Own Story, 1957
