WOW: Words of Wisdom from G.K. Chesterton


I will not comment on these quotes from  G. K. Chesterton because they pack the most punch just the way they were written.

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost.

 Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions.

A stiff apology is a second insult… The injured party does not want to be compensated because he has been wronged; he wants to be healed because he has been hurt.

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.

Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair

  1. Good stuff. Here’s one of my favorites. “A madman is not someone who has lost his reason but someone who has lost everything but his reason”. I happen to be working on a post to publish on his upcoming B-Day. It’s about “The Maniac” (chapter 3 of Orthodoxy)
