Gluttony is a great fault; but we do not necessarily dislike a glutton. We only dislike the glutton when he becomes a gourmet — that is, we only dislike him when he not only wants the best for himself, but knows what is best for other people.–G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
C.K. Chesterton was a prolific English writer. In addition to writing poetry, plays, and philosophy, he also wrote literary and art criticism, biographies, fantasy fiction works and detective fiction. Chesterton has been called the “prince of paradox.” He is well known for his reasoned apologetics, and even some of those who disagree with him have recognized the universal appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man.
