The quote of the day on my Google home page is by G. K. Chesterton:
“The thing I hate about an argument is that it always interrupts a discussion.”
Very insightful. What’s even better is that Google provides a link to a page full of his quotes. Chesterton had a lot to say concerning a variety of topics. Here are a few of my favorites:
Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.
If there were no God, there would be no Atheists.
It is not bigotry to be certain we are right; but it is bigotry to be unable to imagine how we might possibly have gone wrong.
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
I am particularly drawn to his comment regarding bigotry. It’s not that we cannot be certain of ourselves. Certainty only becomes problematic when we cannot listen to critique and opposing view points. Well said G. K., well said I say.
