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

A Defense of Nonsense by G.K Chesterton

There are two equal and eternal ways of looking at this twilight world of ours: we may see it as the twilight of evening or the twilight of morning; we may think of anything, down to a fallen acorn, as a descendant or as an ancestor. There are times when we are almost crushed, not so much with the load of the evil as with the load of the goodness of humanity, when we feel that we are nothing but the inheritors of a humiliating splendour.

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
        The profound silliness involved in disbelieving in the possibility of miracles is very simple. To think that miracles are physically impossible because there is no empirical evidence to support their possibility is hilarious. Why? Continue reading

Six Fields for New Leadership- NH

SOME FERTILE FIELDS IN WHICH “NEW LEADERSHIP” WILL BE REQUIRED

Before leaving this chapter, your attention is called to a few of the fertile fields in which there has been a decline of leadership, and in which the new type of leader may find an abundance of OPPORTUNITY.

First. In the field of politics there is a most insistent demand for new leaders; a demand which indicates nothing less than an emergency.

They have increased taxes and debauched the machinery of industry and business until the people can no longer stand the burden. Continue reading
