G.K. Chesterton Once Said…

This quote pulled me into the work of G.K. Chesterton. I’m now looking forward to diving deeper into the rabbit hole…and very likely adding to the growing pile of books on my nightstand:

“People are more themselves when joy is the fundamental thing in them, and grief the superficial. Melancholy should be an innocent interlude, a tender and figurative frame of mind; praise should be the permanent pulsation of the soul. Pessimism is at best an emotional half-holiday; joy is the uproarious labor by which all things live.”
