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)

Patricia Heaton on GKC

Patricia Heaton posted the following tweet the day before yesterday:


"I’ve been reading #GKChesterton at night before falling asleep. If you want to be transported out of this vulgar, hate-spewing brainless, illiterate world we live in, GK is your man. Witty, optimistic, learned, insightful, gentle, joyous, - a balm for the soul.

Also, from the thread, she states:

"I’ve been reading a Chesterton biography by Maisie Ward - includes many of his letters."


"I laugh every night - his wit sneaks up on you!
