FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: From this month's St. Sebastian Chesterton Society: from "When Wine Was Red:
QUOTE I: "If (man) is not the image of God, then he is a disease of the dust. If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.
QUOTE II: "And thus no animal ever invented anything so bad as drunkenness - or so good as drink."
QUOTE III: "In such things to be careless is to be sane: for neither drunkards nor Muslims can be careless about drink."
QUOTE IV: "If all the trees were bread and cheese there would be considerable deforestation on any part of England where I was living."
QUOTE V: "You are not approaching Nature in one of her myriad tints of mood as in the holy act of eating cheese."
