Cosmic Philosophy

"The modern habit of saying, 'Every man has a different philosophy; this is my philosophy and it suits me'--the habit of saying this is mere weak mindedness.  A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos.  A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon."

-Chesterton

  1. So true! I've been reading Chesterton's Orthodoxy, which says something like this, and it continually astonishes me how he always manages to hit the nail on the head!

    1. Chesterton is just awesome, isn't he? :) Definitely one of my favorite authors of all time. (As you can probably tell by how often I quote him :))
