The Road Less Fettered (#9) • G.K. Chesterton

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

The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried. Merely having an open mind is nothing; the object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.

One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak.

How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.

No man knows he is young while he is young.

The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us.

You cannot love a thing without wanting to fight for it.
