Chesterton Quotes


On the creature called Man
“It is the simple truth that man does differ from the brutes in kind and not in degree; and proof of it is here; that it sounds like a truism to say that the most primitive man drew a picture of a monkey, and that it sounds like a joke to say that the most intelligent monkey drew a picture of a man.Something of a division and disproportion has appeared; and it is unique. Art is the signature of man.”
G.K.Chesterton – The Everlasting Man
