Weekends with Chesterton: The Most Poetical Thing




Sin is often referred to as a sickness, with the Church being called the hospital for those who suffer from the disease. So when I came across the following line I was moved by the profundity of the words:

...the most poetical thing, more poetical than the flowers, more poetical than the stars - the most poetical thing in the world is not being sick.  

~ from The Man Who Was Thursday, a nightmare




Linking up with Sarah at Amongst Lovely Things for Weekends with Chesterton.
