G. K. Chesterton Quote

In the fairy tale, an incomprehensible happiness rests upon an incomprehensible condition. A box is opened and all evils fly out. A word is forgotten and cities perish. A lamp is lit and love flies away. An apple is eaten and the hope of God is gone.


G. K. Chesterton: a selection from his non-fictional prose (ed. 1970)
