Today is G.K. Chesterton’s 140th birthday. In honour of this here are a few of my favourite Chesterton quotes:

g__k__chesterton“There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.”

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”

“A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.”

“Dear Sir: Regarding your article ‘What’s Wrong with the World?’ I am. Yours truly,”

“The things we see every day are the things we never see at all.”
