    Chesterton with his love of medievalism, matrimony and puns sigh His puns are perfect His characters are lovable against all odds His favourite argument was turning things inside out He turns his readers inside out, too, but somehow it always feels like the right side is up I want to ride a hansom cab, search for illumination paint and marry an English gentleman who dares to be deathly idealistic.

  10. Stacy Stacy says:

    A weird story, with moments of rich profundity, as was Chesterton s habit in his fiction This was my favorite bit For worries are never anything but worries, however we turn them round But a sorrow is always a joy reversed.
