Here are some quotes from one of my favorite writers, G. K. Chesterton, (in my opinion one of the greatest writers of the 20th century).
“Love means loving the unlovable – or it is no virtue at all.” – Heretics, 1905
“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.” – Illustrated London News, 4/19/30
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” – ILN, 1/14/11
“When a politician is in opposition he is an expert on the means to some end; and when he is in office he is an expert on the obstacles to it.” – ILN, 4/6/18
“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.” – Orthodoxy, 1908
