Daily Catholic Quote — G. K. Chesterton

A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith

“The truth is, of course, that the curtness of the Ten Commandments is an evidence, not of the gloom and narrowness of a religion, but, on the contrary, of its liberality and humanity. It is shorter to state the things forbidden than the things permitted: precisely because most things are permitted, and only a few things are forbidden.” (G. K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News, Jan. 3, 1920)
