GUEST,Joe_F BS: Chesterton quotes (26) RE: BS: Chesterton quotes 11 Apr 06


"And at last, when I had walked for what seemed a long time, I saw a light too near the earth to mean anything but the image of God." -- "Humanity: An Interlude" (1908)

"The men of the clan live together because they all wear the same tartan or are all descended from the same sacred cow; but in their souls, by the divine luck of things, there will always be more colours than in any tartan. But the men of the clique live together because they have the same kind of soul, and their narrowness is a narrowness of spiritual coherence and contentment, like that which exists in hell." -- "On the Institution of the Family" (1906)

"The best way that a man could test his readiness to encounter the common variety of mankind would be to climb down the chimney into any house at random, and get on as well as possible with the people inside. And that was essentially what each one of us did on the day that he was born." -- Ibid.
