Fashion: An ideal that fails to satisfy.
Water: A medicine. It should be taken in small quantities in very extreme cases; as when one is going to faint.
Work: Doing what you do not like.
This quirky, original compilation serves up the eccentric wit and thought-provoking aphorisms of one of the twentieth century's liveliest and most articulate minds. Assembled by the president of the American Chesterton Society, it features alphabetical entries of "Chesternitions"-- pithy and poetic definitions of words in the spirit of Samuel Johnson. Great for casual browsing or cover-to-cover study, the volume includes more than two dozen of Chesterton's distinctive drawings.
