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.

Masters Jacket- Green due to a Father Brown story?

I admittedly do not watch golf and know little about it, but as a good Chestertonian, I will admit that I find this article which appeared in Golf Digest particularly interesting. It describes a "compelling theory" (as Golf Digest puts it) that the reason the Master's jacket is green is to be found in the Father Brown story "The Queer Feet" (since Bobby Jones was likely a Chesterton reader).
