Weekends with Chesterton: Nature

“Properly speaking, of course, there is no such thing as a return to nature, because there is no such thing as a departure from it. The phrase reminds one of the slightly intoxicated gentleman who gets up in his own dining room and declares firmly that he must be getting home.”                                                                         – The Chesterton Review, August, 1993


  1. Trust Chesterton to use such an example to explain something that should be obvious if we really thought about it.

  2. LOVE this quote! It made my husband chuckle too. Thanks for sharing. :)
