G(ilbert) K(eith) Chesterton
Orthodoxy by G K Chesterton

The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.

from What's Wrong with the World (1910)

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was a popular English journalist, fiction writer, biographer, historian, critic, parodist and poet.   Although originally a liberal in his philosophy, he later became a conservative. Chesterton was raised in the Church of England but became a Roman Catholic in 1922.   Many of his works, even those written before his conversion, are defenses of Roman Catholicism and religious orthodoxy in general.

His books of theological studies include Orthodoxy (1909), St. Francis of Assisi (1923), and St. Thomas Aquinas (1933).

His humerous quotes include:

And Noah he often said to his wife when he sat down to dine, "I don't care where the water goes if it doesn't get into the wine." from Wine and Water.
