A blog dedicated to providing quotes by and posts relating to one of the most influential (and quotable!) authors of the twentieth century, G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936). If you do not know much about GKC, I suggest visiting the webpage of the American Chesterton Society as well as this wonderful Chesterton Facebook Page by a fellow Chestertonian

I also have created a list detailing examples of the influence of Chesterton if you are interested, that I work on from time to time.

(Moreover, for a list of short GKC quotes, I have created one here, citing the sources)

"...Stevenson had found that the secret of life lies in laughter and humility."

-Heretics (1905)

"The Speaker" Articles

A book I published containing 112 pieces Chesterton wrote for the newspaper "The Speaker" at the beginning of his career.

They are also available for free electronically on another blog of mine here, if you wish to read them that way.

Father Brown: Charles Ingalls' boss? :-)

Interesting. I was not aware until this morning (after reading the ACS's Facebook page) of this 1945 radio series, starring Karl Swenson as Father Brown

The Adventures of Father Brown

So, Lars Hanson (who was played by Swenson), owner of Hanson's Mill where Charles Ingalls worked, on Little House on the Prarie was really Father Brown! lol. :-)
