Discover the wit and wisdom of Gilbert Keith Chesterton
"Few things are forbidden"
"THE TRUTH is that the curtness of the Commandments is an evidence, not of the gloom and narrowness of a religion but of its liberality and humanity. It is shorter to state the things forbidden than the things permitted precisely because most things are permitted and only a few things are forbidden."
~G.K. Chesterton: Illustrated London News, Jan. 3, 1920.
