Chesterton: Precious Little Else

“… we are the only men in all history who fell back upon bragging about the mere fact that today is not yesterday. I fear that some in the future will explain it by saying that we had precious little else to brag about.”

– G.K. Chesterton, “On Turnpikes and Medievalism”
