Creative Quotations from . . .
G. K. Chesterton
(1874-1936) born on
May 29
English essayist, novelist, journalist, poet. He is noted for the detective series with sleuth Father Brown.

The fallen sons of Eve;
Even the smell of roses
Is not what they supposes;
But more than mind discloses
And more than men believe.

All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
The rich are the scum of the earth in every country.
