Since Willa is busy packing and preparing to leave on a big deal vacation....Walt Disney World!......I will post our contribution to Weekends With Chesterton for the next two weekends.....
The list of Chesterton Books that I have read is woefully blank. I keep meaning to read GKC.....but there are so.darn.many.books. I can only read so much. I had planned to follow those GKC lectures that Willa was following.......and then I found out that she was following them! I have yet to start. Maybe someday.
Then when Sarah began the Weekends With Chesterton, I though I would do that, get more involved and read some.....but I became severely ill on the first weekend and have just barely recovered. And I lost any momentum I thought that I might have......
Anyway, that is my background. In spite of not having read his works......I have been exposed to much GKC and I have many favorite quotes.
The quote below is one of my favorites. I am always in such awe that what he wrote about in the past.......is so applicable to our present.
“The act of defending any of the cardinal virtues
has today all the exhilaration of a vice.”
–from A Defense of Humilities, The Defendant, 1901
