The human race

7 July 2015

The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children’s games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up.

G. K. Chesterton, first line from The Napoleon of Notting Hill

  1. “The human race, to which so many of my readers belong”?

    I didn’t know there was another critter type that could read our chicken-scratch … 😉

  2. Love G.K. Chesterton. He said so many quotable things. My favorite is “Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
