Friday quotation

A collection of the great G.K. Chesterton for your pleasure.
"The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected."

"The act of defending any of the cardinal virtues has today all the exhilaration of a vice."

"The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog."

"Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere."

"I regard golf as an expensive way of playing marbles."

"Journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers is another."

"Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair."

Thanks to The Ironic Catholic for the meme idea.

This Chesterton quote changed my life last year:

"Why be something to everybody when you can be everything to somebody?"
