Welcome – 4 February 2018

“The publisher said of somebody, ‘That man will get on; he believes in himself.’ I replied, ‘The men who really believe in themselves are all in lunatic asylums. — If you consulted your business experience instead of your ugly individualistic philosophy, you would know that believing in himself is one of the commonest signs of a rotter.’ And to all this my friend the publisher made this very deep and effective reply, “Well, if a man is not to believe in himself, in what is he to believe”? After a long pause I replied, “I will go home and write a book in answer to that question.” This is the book that I have written in answer to it.– GK Chesterton (Orthodoxy).

Do you know in what you are to believe, other than yourself?
