I've quite enjoyed the bit of this book on the power of beauty that I've managed to read, and if I could ever plug through one book at a time (rather than ten) I would certainly like to finish it. The girls and I just finished watching this beautiful true story of an amazing man from the turn of the century who was able to see beauty in its many distressing disguises.
Chesterton Quote of the Day
It's bonus day. Two quotes for you.
"One of the deepest and strangest of all human moods is the mood which will suddenly strike us perhaps in a garden at night, or deep in sloping meadows, the feeling that every flower and leaf has just uttered something stupendously direct and important, and that we have by a prodigy of imbecility not heard or understood it. There is a certain poetic value, and that a genuine one, in this sense of having missed the full meaning of things. There is beauty, not only in wisdom, but in this dazed and dramatic ignorance."-G.K. Chesterton
"Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions."
-G.K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News (19 April 1930)
