On Chesterton

Wed Jul 12, 2006

Is this such a bad thing to aspire to? “The fat man in the cloak and the brigand’s hat forever stopping for a pork pie and a beer while he scribbled yet another poem or article on his cuff or on the back of a sugar packet” (D. J. Conlon G. K. Chesterton: a Half-Century of Views [1987]: xxiii, qtd. in ODNB entry).

I especially like the “sugar packet” there.
