Gilbert Chesterton

Gilbert Chesterton

English Christian thinker and writer of the late XIX - early XX centuries.
What is the good of words if they aren't important enough to quarrel over? Why do we choose one word more than another if there isn't any difference between them? If you called a woman a chimpanzee instead of an angel, wouldn't there be a quarrel about a word? If you're not going to argue about words, what are you going to argue about? Are you going to convey your meaning to me by moving your ears? The Church and the heresies always used to fight about words, because they are the only thing worth fighting about.More Gilbert Chesterton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
