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.

To love anything with a reason is to tire of it very soon; to love without a reason is to love for ever.


[The World, quoted in Bush Advocate, Volume XVI, Issue 566, 15 November 1904, Page 3]

The trouble with most people is that they don't know what they want, and they do it in a hurry.

[quoted in Evening Post, Volume CIV, Issue 37, 12 August 1922, Page 18]
