Chesterton

Over at the Gospel Coalition Thabiti has a great list of quotes from G.K. Chesterton. A few samples below. You can find the rest right here

What a guy Chesterton was. He had, and still has, the ability as a Roman Catholic, to unite people who normally don’t read much of the same things, in reading him and agreeing that he is worth the effort. These quotes should make us want to read more of him. I have to admit I haven’t read him much, but I have listened to his books being read to me as I walk back and forth to work. You can find him on iTunes.

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”

“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
