"In the main, and from the beginning of time, mysticism has kept men sane. The thing that has driven them mad was logic."

I love me some Chesterton. My favorite work of his is The Napoleon of Notting Hill. My friend loves it equally, especially the last chapter, probably because I think a lot like Adam Wayne, and she thinks a lot like Auberon Quin.

I've actually never read any Chesterton. I found this quote in the latest issue of The Sun magazine.

I've not read Chesterton either, but go Sun magazine - isn't it great? I've also gotten hooked on Ode magazine, have you seen it?

I love both mysticism and logic - where does that leave me?

I have not seen Ode magazine. I'll have to check it out next time I'm near a decent magazine rack.

Mysticism and logic sounds like a healthy balance, but mysticism in an arm wrestling match with logic where the meaning of suffering is at stake, wins.

That sentence is very fucked up grammatically so we're just going to have to mystically transcend it.

so the sentence isn't very logical. i can indeed transcend that. and yes, i agree, mysticism does win out in that context.

I thought it was logic and booze that kept men sane and women that drove them mad.

You have been reading The Sun! I love the cover photo on the current issue.
