G K Chesterton, a few quotes

by marinetbryant / November 10, 2006 10:16 AM PST

"Men are ruled, at this minute by the clock, by liars who refuse them news, and by fools who cannot govern." - The New Name, Utopia of Usurers and Other Essays, 1917

"It is terrible to contemplete how few politicians are hanged." - The Cleveland Press, 3/1/21

"Once abolish the God, and the government becomes the God." - Christendom in Dublin, 1933

"There is a corollary to the conception of being too proud to fight. It is that the humble have to do most of the fighting." - Everlasting Man, 1925

"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him." - ILN, 1/14/11

The "Everlasting Man" is a good book to read.
