and every custom begins as a broken precedent."

Original well written and true
 -- Peter Wasowski, Kamuela     
    Well written by a very articulate person
     -- Klara, New York     
    I would have to know the context and specific audience intended before rating the comment. By example; truth exists eternally outside an origination of one. Customs may begin as a continuation of successful attributes rather than a broken precedent. As a stand alone comment, I would be prone to give it "one" star.

    Truth is ever-present, its origin from the mouth of Nature's God. ;-)  I think what Astor means is the realization of the truth rests with the individual.  This shift may set new precedents and be the beginning of a new tradition (until the next big realization).

    Speaking of herself more than likely. No deep thought there. More could be said, but why waist the ink.
