The Universe According to G. K. Chesterton : A Dictionary of the Mad, Mundane and Metaphysical

Description

Fashion An ideals that fails to satisfy. Water A medicine. It should be taken in small quantities in very extreme cases; as when one is going to faint. Work Doing what you do not like. This quirky, original compilation serves up the eccentric wit and thought-provoking aphorisms of one of the twentieth century's liveliest and most articulate minds. Assembled by the president of the American Chesterton Society, it features alphabetical entries of "Chesternitions"--pithy and poetic definitions of words in the spirit of Samuel Johnson. Great for casual browsing or cover-to-cover study, the volume includes more than two dozen of Chesterton's distinctive drawings.
