May 29
English essayist, novelist, journalist, poet. He is noted for the detective series with sleuth Father Brown.

People accuse journalism of being too personal; but to me it has always seemed far too impersonal. It is charged with tearing away the veils from private life; but it seems to me to be always dropping diaphanous but blinding veils between men and men.

R
And goodness only knowses
The Noselessness of Man.
A
`The Christian ideal,' it is said, `has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.'
N
Ritual will always mean throwing away something: destroying our corn or wine upon the altar of our gods.
K
But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.
Smile at us, pay us, pass us. But do not quite forget.
