Weekends with Chesterton: Free-thought

Free-thought may be suggestive, it may be inspiriting, it may have as much as you please of the merits that come from vivacity and variety. But there is one thing Free-thought can never be by any possibility--Free-thought can never be progressive. It can never be progressive because it will accept nothing from the past; it begins every time again from the beginning; and it goes every time in a different direction.
The Ball and the Cross, G.K. Chesterton


  1. I love it! I could think about this for a long time....and I believe I will.

  2. I agree with Gretchen- this one will have me thinking all week!
