My favorite Chesterton quote: “There is only one sin: to call a green leaf gray.”
Why is that a sin?
I just today ran across these three great Chesterton quotes:
“it is the beginning of all true criticism of our time to realize that it has really nothing to say at the very moment when it has invented so tremendous a trumpet for saying it”: from “The Proper Review of Machines”—1923. (think: internet today)
“None of the modern machines, none of the modern paraphernalia...have any power except over the people who choose to use them” (Daily News, July 21, 1906)
“It is always hard to correct the exaggeration without exaggerating the correction”-—from “The New Jerusalem”, chapter 5
( a great counsel for us on the religion forum :-) )
