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)

GKC in "The Sandman" Netflix series (sort of...)

GKC (sort of) in "The Sandman" Netflix series, and about a minute into the clip quoting from GKC's book Orthodoxy:
"...the miracle of humanity itself should be always more vivid to us than any marvels of power..."

Obviously, the character of Gilbert/Fiddler's Green is not literally GKC, but he was modeled on GKC (Neil Gaiman being an admirer of Chesterton).
