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)

Finally, not directly Chesterton related, but I highly recommend the following websites

M.G.D.'s website is where you can learn the latest concerning the Marcus series of novels, as well as other great writing!

Mardi Robyn, run by my great friend Mardi, is an excellent site for handmade jewelry and accessories that you'll love! Also make sure to visit Rockin' Robyn Boutique

Please make sure to visit those sites! (And remember, it is very Chestertonian to support small businesses!)

Manuel ("Fawlty Towers") as Father Brown

From the latest issue of Gilbert! (March/April 2020):
In our Rolling Road column this issue...we make reference to the character Manuel of Fawlty Towers fame. Here's an interesting trifle about Andrew Sachs, the wonderful actor who played Manuel: He also played Father Brown! In 1984, BBC radio produced 13 episodes of Father Brown stories. You can listen to them on the Internet Archive: http://archive.org/d…/FatherBrown_201704/Father+Brown+02.mp3
