Gratitude : GK Chesterton

Posted by Remy on March 20, 2010

It is dangerous to open a book by GK Chesterton because the man spoke in quips. Tempted by many I post only one:

It is a good exercise, in empty or ugly hours of the day, to look at anything, the coalscuttle or the bookcase, and think how happy one could be to have brought it out of the sinking ship on to the solitary island.

-GK Chesterton, The Ethics of Elfland

I once went an entire year attributing every quote to GK Chesterton.
