I awaked up last of all, as one that gathereth after the grape-gatherers: by the blessing of the Lord I profited, and filled my winepress like a gatherer of grapes. Consider that I laboured not for myself only, but for all them that seek learning. -Ecclus. 33:16-18

G. K. CHESTERTON ON...
...THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: "[E]ven polytheism seems often the combination of several monotheisms. A god will gain only a minor seat on Mount Olympus, when he had owned earth and heaven and all the stars while he lived in his own little valley." -The Everlasting Man
...CERTAIN OF MY REVIEWERS: "'...Oh, if these new pagans would only be old pagans, they would be a little wiser! The old pagans knew that mere naked Nature-worship must have a cruel side. They knew that the eye of Apollo can blast and blind.'" -"The Eye of Apollo", from The Innocence of Father Brown
...MICHELLE OBAMA, MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, ET AL.: "It used to be said that a man could have liberty, so long as it did not interfere with the liberty of others... For instance, it was logical to allow some degree of distinction between beer and tea, on the ground that a man may be moved by excess of beer to throw the pot at somebody's head, and it may be said that the spinster is seldom moved by excess of tea to throw the teapot at anybody's head. But the whole ground of argument is now changed... The argument is based on health; and it is said that the Government must safeguard the health of the community. And the moment that is said, there ceases to be the shadow of a difference between beer and tea. People can certainly spoil their health with tea, or with tobacco, or with twenty other things. And there is no escape for the hygienic logician except to restrain and regulate them all." -Eugenics and Other Evils
...THE FORMER ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE MASS: "Christianity even when watered down is hot enough to boil all modern society to rags. The mere minimum of the Church would be a deadly ultimatum to the world." -Orthodoxy
...WHAT WAS WRONG WITH MAMMA MIA!: "For the purpose even of the wildest romance, results must be real; results must be irrevocable. Christian marriage is the great example of a real and irrevocable result; and that is why it is the chief subject and centre of all our romantic writing." -also Orthodoxy
...THOSE WHO OBJECT TO THIS SITE HAVING GUIDELINES: "Anarchism adjures us to be bold creative artists, and care for no laws or limits. But it is impossible to be an artist and not care for laws and limits. Art is limitation; the essence of every picture is the frame." -Orthodoxy, once again
...THE EUROPEAN UNION, AND WHY IT REALLY DIDN'T WANT CHRISTIANITY MENTIONED IN ITS CONSTITUTION: "The instinct of the Pagan empire would have said, 'You shall all be Roman citizens, and grow alike; let the German grow less slow and reverent; the Frenchman less experimental and swift.' But the instinct of Christian Europe says, 'Let the German remain slow and reverent, that the Frenchman may more safely be swift and experimental. We will make an equipoise out of these excesses. The absurdity called Germany shall correct the insanity called France.'" -yep, you guessed it, Orthodoxy
