Quote of the Day

“Do not be proud of the fact that your grandmother was shocked at something which you are accustomed to seeing or hearing without being shocked…. It may be that your grandmother was an extremely lively and vital animal, and that you are a paralytic.”

— G. K. Chesterton, as quoted in Roger Kimball’s new book,  The Fortunes of Permanence: Culture and Anarchy in an Age of Amnesia.
