G. K. Chesterton

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on secularism, matiralism, evil, inhumanity, atheism, nihilism, and new age

"The secularists have not wrecked divine things; but the secularists have wrecked secular things, if that is any comfort to them. The Titans did not scale heaven; but they laid waste the world."

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on new age, cults, truth, belief, spirituality, god, christianity, free thought, and critical thinking

Where people stop believing the truth, they do not start to believe in nothing, they start to believe in anything.

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on philosophy, habit, weak, cosmos, religion, private, sun, and moon

"The modern habit of saying, 'Every man has a different philosophy; this is my philosophy and it suits me'--the habit of saying this is mere weak mindedness.  A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos.  A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon."

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on strange society, trades, refreshing, and childhood of the world

The discovery of this strange society was a curiously refreshing thing; to realize that there were ten new trades in the world was like looking at the first ship or the first plough. It made a man feel what he should feel, that he was still in the childhood of the world.
