The following quotes are from this week’s reading, “The Surprise” at the St. Sebastian G. K. Chesterton Society
FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: “Only witches and wicked sorcerers make men captives by their enchantment; imprison them in beasts or birds or turn them to stoen statues. God’s miracles always free men from captivity and give them back their bodies.”
QUOTE II: “Obedience. The most thrilling world in the world; a very thunderclap of a word. Why do all these fools fancy that they soul is only free when it disagrees with the common command?”
QUOTE III: “. . . the only way to bind a gentleman is to tell him he is free.”
QUOTE IV: “But you will never understand them in a thousand years, if you suppose that coarse and common men love nothing except coarseness and commonness.”
