Read his poetry - very witty but very astute.
Thanks for the suggestion. Apparently the copyright on much of his work has expired and it is readily available on the web.
Every week there's a new quote from Chesterton's writings posted at The Hebdomadal Chesterton. They are not all about gratitude, but some are.
I've never read anything by this author, but I know he has a book called "ORTHODOXY" and it's on my wishlist... I've heard it raved about by several people (hence why I want to read it). Good luck!
I was able to download a free copy of Orthodoxy and some of his poetry at ManyBooks.com for my Kindle. I also bookmarked Hebdomadal. Thank you for the help!
I think there was an article about him in the New Yorker recently. I haven't read anything of his but he sounds very up my alley. I'll be interested to see where your reading takes you. :-)
I haven't read any Chesterton either, but am very interested. I'll be interested in hearing what you think and then wait for your recommendations. :)
Well, the New Yorker article wasn't very complimentary toward Chesterton, but I've yet to find anyone of his generation or earlier who was politically correct. A recent read of Mark Twain's Roughing It left my head spinning, with comparisons between Native Americans and "cayotes".
