Order and wildness

The more I considered Christianity,
the more I have found that
while it had established a rule and order,
the chief aim of that order was to give room
for good things to run wild.

–G. K. Chesterton

Suffering and joy

For those who do not believe in God,
joy is peripheral and suffering is fundamental;
but for the believer, suffering is peripheral
and joy is fundamental.

–G. K. Chesterton
