From the pen of G. K. Chesterson:
"There is no way out of danger except the dangerous way."
"It is easy to be solemn; it is hard to be frivolous."
"It is of the new things that men tire - of fashions and proposals and improvements and changes. It is the old things that startle and intoxicate. It is the old things that are young."
"Charity to the deserving is not charity."
"The self is more distant than any star."
The mere pursuit of health always leads to something unhealthy."
Nature worship inevitably produces things that are against nature."
"Men can always be blind to a thing so long as it is big enough. It is so difficult to see the world in which we live."
"He has always cared more for truth than for consistency. If he saw two truths that seemed to contradict each other, he would take the two truths and the contradiction along with them."
