Mom: I forgot to tell you! It's less than 2 months until you graduate!
Me: Rude! It's 2 months until you turn 50, how do you like them apples?
Mom: Really well, what are you doing after you graduate?
My ultimate goal in life is to go to Italy and meet Papa Francis and take a selfie with him. No one will crush my dream, it will happen.
DO THE THING!!
Watched the first half of Cosmos. It’s too late at night to get into this but God if you grant my writing any speck of influence In this world let it be as a force of reconciliation between those who think your church and plan of redemption for the cosmos is incompatible with your structure of it.

Chesterton (via the-last-crusade)
I’m kind of curious as to what this, exactly, means.
I don’t remember the context, but I’m pretty sure it might have something to do with the idea of intellectual insanity —- sometimes all an intellectual needs is a little dose of reality.
Oh, do you mean as in if someone has an idea that sounds really great and right but it’s revealed to be terrible and not at all a good idea in the open, outside of his head?
That could be one thing, but I was thinking of something a bit more familiar to Chesterton, namely that too much learning is a type of insanity. Basically the learned professor type who’ll go on and on about how there is no such thing as (for instance) free will, when a few minutes in reality can prove completely the opposite.
Oooh, I see what you’re saying. So air outside of the intellectual pen, then. I’ve never read his work, yet, to have an idea of his context. :3
There’s a lot. Seriously, a lot. It’s cool though, because he has a lot of repeating ideas, like the fundamental goodness of creation and the ultimate mystery of God… I love Chesterton to bits, but a lot of people find him too verbose or too repetitive or too paradoxical. To each his own. :)
DID SOMEONE WANT TO READ CHESTERTON!! (Runs in panting)
This quote is from “Orthodoxy” and it’s free as an audiobook on libravox.com and as a ebook on amazon kindle and it’s verbose but oh so snarky. I have yet to meet a writer that can disprove his enemy’s philosophy and call them a chicken and make it a relevant point - and oh my brain!! He’s like CS Lewis with a deeply subtle brand of British humor
