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