I Once Spent a Year Attributing Every Quote to GK Chesterton

Posted by Remy on September 1, 2009

“Real development is not leaving things behind, as on a road, but drawing life from them, as from a root. Even when we improve we never progress. For progress, the metaphor from the road, implies a man leaving his home behind him: but improvement means a man exalting the towers or extending the gardens of his home.”
-GK Chesterton

  1. Is this really a Chesterton quote, or is it a Lewis one?

    My year of attributing every quote to GK is long over. Really, it is Chesterton.
