Government and the Rights of Man G. K. Chesterton

Originally Published in the Illustrated London News, July 30, 1921

Can You Be Too Reasonable?

Some people talk like you can be too reasonable because your intellect can get in the way of your heart, or your faith. But is this true? I don’t think so. Rather, I think it is more reasonable to say that a person can be ignorant or unskilled in proper reasoning. But don’t take my word for it. Continue reading

A Piece of Chalk by G.K. Chesterton- Creation and Poetry

I remember one splendid morning, all blue and silver, in the summer holidays when I reluctantly tore myself away from the task of doing nothing in particular, and put on a hat of some sort and picked up a walking-stick, and put six very bright-colored chalks in my pocket. Continue reading

Christmas and the First Games by G. K. Chesterton- Rituals

I have sometimes been haunted with a vague story about a wild and fantastic uncle, the enemy of parents and the cause of revolution in nurseries, who went about preaching a certain theory; I mean the theory that all the objects which children use at Christmas for what we call riotous or illegitimate purposes, were originally created for those purposes; and not for the humdrum household purposes which they now serve.
