Resist Your Time

Lord Acton, Essays in Religion, Politics, and Morality: Selected Writings of Lord Acton, Vol. 3 (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 1988), p. 620:
"Resist your time — take a foothold outside it — see other times and ask yourself whether the time of our ancestors is fit for us."

Ferdinand Hodler, Spaziergänger im Wald (1885)
