We all have heard the hypothetical question, “If you could pick one person, dead or alive, to sit and talk with on a park bench for an hour, who would it be?
Well, from the first time I was ever asked that question, the answer has always been the same. . . G. K. Chesterton.
Thank you to Kurt over at CulturalOffering.com for the reminder of GK dying on this day in 1936. and for the reference that follows:
A few weeks before his death G. K. Chesterton was for some time in a deep quiet of thought, heedless of what and who were around him. Suddenly he said as if speaking to himself, and therefore to the world, “The issue is now clear. It is between light and darkness. And everyone must choose his side.”
