The Joke of Miracles: Silly Nonsense of Disbelieving Miracles

  Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature. –Saint Augustine

A Defence of Humility by G.K. Chesterton

The act of defending any of the cardinal virtues has to-day all the exhilaration of a vice. Moral truisms have been so much disputed that they have begun to sparkle like so many brilliant paradoxes. And especially (in this age of egoistic idealism) there is about one who defends humility something inexpressibly rakish. Continue reading
