Daily Dose

From As I Was Saying... A Chesterton Reader, edited by Robert Knille


"The truth about Gothic is, first, that it is alive, and second, that it is on the march. It is the Church Militant; it is the only fighting architecture. All its spires are spears at rest; and all its stones are stone asleep in a catapult."

From Chapter 14, The Architect of Spears
