Here’s my drawing of this morning depicting one of my great favorites, G.K. Chesterton.  In addition to being a prolific writer, playwright and Christian apologist, Chesterton was an excellent artist.  He’s one of the most quotable writers of all time.  A few examples:

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.”

An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”

“Moral issues are always terribly complex for someone without principles.”

“Marriage is a duel to the death that no man of honour should decline.”
