I collect GKC quotes like there's no tomorrow. [In reply to] Can't Post

*looks around before whispering guiltily* I also collect the little meme e-cards with pictures of him and his quotes written on them. And I collect his books. Wink

Ah, Father Brown. I actually like Father Brown - he's so adorable. But he is a very different sort of detective from the ones we are used to (i.e., the brilliant Sherlock Holmes), so I can see why some might not favor it as much. If you're up for philosophy, Manalive and The Man Who Was Thursday are also pretty good.

And, of course, there's always The Ballad of the White Horse. I know in one of Tolkien's letters he comments about helping Priscilla read it and observes that GKC really didn't know all that much about the cultures he was writing about in the Ballad, but I like it regardless. Lepanto is good, as well. I just like the way the words smash together and glitter in such a pretty and memorably way when GKC rhymes.

Sorry for going overboard on the GKC! It's just I find so few fellow fans...

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
