Reason and Imagination

Here are a few G.K. Chesterton quotes I rather enjoyed courtesy of Anderson Layman’s blog:

“Fairy tales are more than true — not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.”

“Briefly, you can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it.”

“Life is not an illogicality; yet it is a trap for logicians. It looks just a little more mathematical and regular than it is; its exactitude is obvious, but its inexactitude is hidden; its wildness lies in wait.”

“There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect. Men do not quarrel about the meaning of sunsets; they never dispute that the hawthorn says the best and wittiest thing about the spring.”
