“Not two men, but one”

Happy is he who still loves something that he loved in the nursery: he has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and has saved not only his soul but his life.

–- Illustrated London News,
26 September 1908.

  2. Hey, I wanted to thank you again for creating this blog and filling it. I’ve come back more than you can imagine, because you’ve selected such a good subset of Chesterton and put it in searchable form. I tend to remember key phrases from powerful essays, and I’ve come here searching for them time and time again so I can share the wisdom of Chesterton with friends and acquaintances.

    So, thank you.

    • Thanks so much for these encouraging words! Life has been such that I haven’t been able to continue posting to this site on my weekly schedule for a while now. I do intend to resume once I return to a sane schedule. In the meantime, my gratitude for your kind remarks.
