The Birthday of the great G.K. Chesterton!

Today is the birthday of the great Catholic writer G.K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936) He is definitely one of my heroes and I pray daily for his Beatification. Here are just 3 of my favorite quotes

“An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is an inconvenience rightly considered.” – On Running After Ones Hat, All Things Considered

"Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a coloured pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling." - On Lying in Bed

"Paradox simply means a certain defiant joy which belongs to belief" - Heretics
