Larry found this snippet from G. K. Chesterton:
G.K. Chesterton: “unless we live as we believe, we’ll end up believing as we live.”
Thanks much and keep up the good reading.
Our member (but not frequent enough attendee) Patty R. found a local writer paying homage to GKC:
From Kevin Horrigan’s farewell column in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch;
I take down my wall of inspirational quotes. Elmore Leonard on dealing with trolls: “Nestor — Nestor was spooky. He was so serious about being stupid.”
G.K. Chesterton: “The Christian idea has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried.”
And finally, my framed copy of the creed laid down by the late political columnist Lars-Erik Nelson of the New York Daily News: “The enemy is not conservatism. The enemy is not liberalism. The enemy is bullshit.”
That’s one to go out on. So I will.
