Managing Monday with G.K.Chesterton, take 4

Posted by on Sep 5, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

This is the fourth and (for now) final Managing Monday post on G.K.Chesterton. Noted for his ability to highlight the paradoxical, Chesterton was one of the intellectual giants of the 20th century. A significant Christian apologist, he often used his skills to defend the Roman Catholic Church. His love for the church comes across in his fictional detective-priest, Father Brown.

Being our final Chesterton post, I have thrown in a few bonus quotes…

  • The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried – G.K.Chesterton
  • We do not want a Church that will move with the world. We want a Church that will move the world – G.K.Chesterton
  • There are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people – G.K.Chesterton
  • There are two ways to get enough: One is to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less – G.K.Chesterton
  • Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten – G.K.Chesterton

Our final Chesterton quote for now remains remarkably relevant…

Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. In practice it means that hardly anybody is allowed to mention it – G.K.Chesterton

Nice chatting…
