The Road Less Fettered (#7) • G.K. Chesterton

by Ray Reuter on September 17, 2015


The Road Less Fettered has been traveled before by many wise and wonderful people. In this post I honor wise man G.K. Chesterton. Below are several of my favorite Chesterton quotes that prompts one to unfetter …

“A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.”

“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”

“An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is an inconvenience rightly considered.”

“To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.”

“Progress should mean that we are always changing the world to fit the vision, instead we are always changing the vision.”

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

“Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.”

“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.”
