Not Horas Sha'ah

"...but Torah Im Derech Eretz is nevertheless the one true principle conducive to "truth and peace," to healing and recovery from all ills and all religious confusion. The principle of Torah Im Derech Eretz can fulfill this function because it is not part of troubled, time-bound notions; it represents the ancient, traditional wisdom of our Sages that has stood the test everywhere and at all times. These Sages, and they alone, have always been, and still are, our chachmas b'emes."

R' Hirsch, Collected Writings VI, p. 221
