Philosophy for the Schoolroom by G.K. Chesterton

Daily News, June 22, 1907 (quoted in Maycock, pp. 91-93)

Two Kinds of Paradox by G.K. Chesterton

There is nothing that needs more fastidious care than our choice of nonsense. Sense is like daylight or daily air, and may come from any quarter or in any quantity. But nonsense is an art.
