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.

Habemus Papam!

An interesting link...

The following is from a few years ago, and I'm using Google translate (it being fairly obvious it is an automatic translation, given how rough it is), but....

Dear friend:


Between 21 and 24 September will be held in Buenos Aires the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
(FIRST SOUTH AMERICAN), which organizes the GK Chesterton Institute for Faith and Culture, Society conjuntocon Chestertonian in Argentina.

The ideas and principles and reported interpellate Chesterton defended strongly to the challenges
We propose our time dramatically. The "culture of death" has been installed on all
areas of the civilized world. Moral relativism, the attack on the Church, the destruction of common sense, with the attempt to dissolve the principles that support the family and therefore society, threaten to destroy the remains of what was once called the culture cristinano west.
This is a most particular opportunity for dissemination of ideas of Chesterton, his friends and followers on our hands becomes an effective tool for the Christianization of contemporary culture.

Significant foreign personalities address different issues related to the crisis of our
time, effort that will be shared by qualified exhibitors from our environment.

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio BE, Primate of Argentina, has sponsored the Conference and
officiate a Mass at UCA on September 23.

Waiting at the conference meet, greet you cordially
