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)

A little early for Christmas, but I just came across this wonderful narration on Youtube of GKC's Christmas "ghost story" (from his book Tremendous Trifles), called "The Shop of Ghosts". The narration is done by Edward E. French:

Thanks for sharing! I'm hoping to read more broadly of GKC in 2024.
