G.K. Chesterton
“It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged. ”
G.K. Chesterton

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”
J.R.R. Tolkien

G.K. Chesterton
“Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously.”
G.K. Chesterton

C.S. Lewis
“Aim at Heaven and you will get Earth 'thrown in': aim at Earth and you will get neither.”
C.S. Lewis, The Joyful Christian

Robert Conquest
“There was an old bastard named Lenin
Who did two or three million men in.

Robert Conquest
