G.K. Chesterton

“I have called this book “What Is Wrong with the World?” and the upshot of the title can be easily and clearly stated. What is wrong is that we do not ask what is right.” G.K. Chesterton

“Human nature simply cannot subsist without a hope and aim of some kind; as the sanity of the Old Testament truly said, where there is no vision the people perish. But it is precisely because an ideal is necessary to man that the man without ideals is in permanent danger of fanaticism.” G.K. Chesterton

“‘There is pain in the world, therefore, God does not exist’ makes as much sense as saying, 'I feel hungry, therefore, food does not exist’” G.K. Chesterton

“The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.”  G. K. Chesterton

Warm Summer Sun

By  Mark Twain   

Warm summer sun,

    Shine kindly here,

Warm southern wind,

    Blow softly here.

Green sod above,

    Lie light, lie light.

Good night, dear heart,

    Good night, good night.
