If you've ever watched "Fiddler on the Roof" there is a song about "Tradition." The lyrics go like this:
Feed a wife and children, say his daily prayers?
And who has the right, as master of the house,
To have the final word at home?
The Papa, the Papa! Tradition."
"And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in one word: Tradition!" Fiddler on the Roof.
