Gilbert Chesterton

English Christian thinker and writer of the late XIX - early XX centuries.
O God of earth and altar,
Bow down and hear our cry,
Our earthly rulers falter,
Our people drift and die;
The walls of gold entomb us,
The swords of scorn divide,
Take not thy thunder from us,
But take away our pride.More Gilbert Chesterton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Though the academic authorities are actually proud of conducting everything by means of Examinations, they seldom indulge in what religious people used to descibe as Self-Examination.
