Favorite Chesterton Quotes.

1. Max one quote a day from any posters. Why? Well, there are about a thousand odd quotes I would like to post, and I am sure I am not the only one. :D

2. No paragraphs or essays, just (relatively) short quotes. We all know GK could talk for hours about nearly anything, so keep it short.

C'mon fellow Chesterton fans, lets share some of our best GK quotes to the uninitiated! Hopefully this thread is in the right place, as I figured GK's line of thinking and approach to our Faith will be helpful to some! Our religion is one of joy because we want to be in it, not being a downer because we have to! Lets see what you got!

"Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions."

G.K. Chesterton

"Three acres and a cow".

“There are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people.”
― G.K. Chesterton
Kinda like this thread.... :D

Non Nobis:
"Angels can fly because they can take.themselves lightly."

I have  a bad memory but this is on my refrigerator, somewhere.

"Nietzsche's aristocracy has about it all the sacredness that belongs to the weak. When he makes us feel that he cannot endure the innumerable faces, the incessant voices, the overpowering omnipresence which belongs to the mob, he will have the sympathy of anybody who has ever been sick on a steamer or tired in a crowded omnibus. Every man has hated mankind when he was less than a man. Every man has had humanity in his eyes like a blinding fog, humanity in his nostrils like a suffocating smell. But when Nietzsche has the incredible lack of humour and lack of imagination to ask us to believe that his aristocracy is an aristocracy of strong muscles or an aristocracy of strong wills, it is necessary to point out the truth. It is an aristocracy of weak nerves."
