Installment Twenty Two...

"For our titanic purposes of faith and revolution, what we need is not the cold acceptance of the world as a compromise, but some way in which we can heartily hate and love it. We do not want joy and anger to neutralize each other and produce a surly contentment; we want a fiercer delight and a fiercer discontent. We have to feel the universe at once as an ogre's castle, to be stormed, and yet as our own cottage, to which we can return at evening."

-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

That's a fantastic quote. I'm still taking it all in. It definitely resonates with me.
