I love G.K. Chesterton. I love everything about him. He writes philosophy, theology, mystery, and fiction…basically everything I love. He was an insane genius; he could write one essay and dictate another to his wife simultaneously, which is seriously impressive. He had such a way with words that his quotes are used over and over again, and will live on forever.
“The first use of good literature is that it prevents a man from being merely modern. To be merely modern is to condemn oneself to an ultimate narrowness.”
“Merely having an open mind is nothing; the object of opening a mind, as of opening a mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”
“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions”
Love this man, he never stops spittin’ truth.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
