A Week With G.K. Chesterton (Monday)

This week, I thought I would give you some of my favorite G.K. Chesterton quotes. The guy was one of those writers who is endlessly quotable. He was a British thinker and author who died in 1936, a Catholic, and a significant influence on the thinking of C.S. Lewis. He wrote some deeply theological things, but he was very humorous too. His book, Orthodoxy, is one of my favorites.

On this Monday in Chesterton Week…

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”

“Not only is suicide a sin, it is the sin. It is the ultimate and absolute evil, the refusal to take an interest in existence; the refusal to take the oath of loyalty to life. The man who kills a man, kills a man. The man who kills himself, kills all men; as far as he is concerned he wipes out the world.”
