Joy and Thoughts of G.K. Chesterton

Joy from G.K. Chesterton:

People often ask me for quotes that convey Chesterton's profound joy. Chesterton's sense of gratitude that informs everything is probably best epitomized in his prayer from his early notebooks:

Here dies another day
During which I have had eyes, ears, hands
And the great world round me;
And with tomorrow begins another.
Why am I allowed two?

Another favorite of mine:

Wherever there are happy men
they will build beautiful things.

New Book by Dale Ahlquist Available for Pre-Order:

The Complete Thinker:
The Marvelous Mind of G.K.Chesterton

"Thinking", wrote Chesterton, "means connecting things." His ideas are not only connected to each other, they are also connected to us, showing that the thought of Chesterton is timeless. In a world of increasing specialization, Chesterton connects us to the big picture by helping us see how the many and varied elements within our experience fit together. He sheds light on almost every subject and opens doors from one thing to another with dazzling clarity.

Chesterton's thoughts on almost everything-from east to west, from old to new, from politics to economics, from Shakespeare to Dickens-are woven together to create an illuminating whole.
