G.K. ChestertonWe talk, by a sort of habit, about Modern Thought, forgetting the familiar fact that moderns do not think. They only feel, and that is why they are so much stronger in fiction than in facts, why their novels are so much better than their newspapers. The current comment on all these things is … the queerest sort of patchwork of pagan and purely Christian ideas.

--G.K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News, 1930
