Chesterton Day by Day


MARCH 15th

THE modern world (intent on anarchy in everything, even in Government) refuses to perceive the permanent element of tragic constancy which inheres in all passion, and which is the origin of marriage. Marriage rests upon the fact that you cannot have your cake and eat it; that you cannot lose your heart and have it.

G.K. Chesterton, Introduction to 'David Copperfield.'
