Discover the wit and wisdom of Gilbert Keith Chesterton
"We should need no other apocalypse"
"THERE is always in the healthy mind an obscure prompting that religion teaches us rather to dig than to climb; that if we could once understand the common clay of earth we should understand everything. Similarly, we have the sentiment that if we could destroy custom at a blow and see the stars as a child sees them, we should need no other apocalypse. This is the great truth which has always lain at the back of baby-worship, and which will support it to the end."
~G.K. Chesterton: The Defendant, 'A Defense of Baby-Worship.'
