The Ideal of a Leisure State G. K. Chesterton

 Originally Published in the The Illustrated London News, March 21, 1925

Among the strange and rather stiff antics of the rather antiquated art of party journalism is the duty laid upon the good party man of trying to disagree with his opponents when they have the impudence to agree with him. He not only has to insist that they are wrong; he has to deny their right to be right. Even when you have to admit that your antagonist is talking sense, even when you pride yourself on talking exactly the same sense, you have to deny that it is sensible of him to talk sense.

The Return of the Angels by G. K. Chesterton

I write these remarks with one great hope, that of arousing controversy. It is really a singular matter that amid all the talk of the great work of physical science and its alleged victory over religious dogmatism, no one has noticed what the greatest of all the triumphs of science really was.

Faith and Reason Quotes

Here are some great quotes on faith and reason:

Democracy and Industrialism by G. K. Chesterton

It grows plainer, every day, that those of us who cling to crumbling creeds and dogmas, and defend the dying traditions of the Dark Ages, will soon be left alone defending the most obviously decaying of all those ancient dogmas: the idea called Democracy. Continue reading

Limits of the Human Mind: According to Voltaire

LIMITS OF THE HUMAN MIND: Voltaire’s Philosophical Dictionary

Someone asked Newton one day why he walked when he wanted to, and how his arm and his hand moved at his will. He answered manfully that he had no idea. “But at least,” his interlocutor said to him, “you who understand so well the gravitation of the planets will tell me why they turn in one direction rather than in another!” And he again confessed that he had no idea.
