G.K. Chesterton

"All men are ordinary men; the extraordinary men are those who know it."
“There are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people.”
“To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.”
“Drink because you are happy, but never because you are miserable.”
"The crowded stars seemed bent upon being understood."
“How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.”
“You can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it.”
“I regard golf as an expensive way of playing marbles.”
“There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there.”
"America is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed. That creed is set forth in the Declaration of Independence; perhaps the only piece of practical politics that is also great literature."
"Every one on this earth should believe, amid whatever madness or moral failure, that his life and temperament have some object on the earth. Every one on the earth should believe that he has something to give to the world which cannot otherwise be given."
"The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost."
