The ordinary man has always been sane because the ordinary man has always been a mystic. He has permitted the twilight. He has always had one foot in earth and the other in fairyland. He has always left himself free to doubt his gods; but (unlike the agnostic of today) free also to believe in them. He has always cared more for truth than for consistency. If he saw two truths that seemed to contradict each other, he would take the two truths and the contradiction along with them.

Orthodoxy, G. K. Chesterton

(Não estava à espera de encontrar uma dimensão teológica no nome deste blogue, mas agora que Chesterton mo revelou faz todo o sentido. Aliás, há muita coisa revelada por Orthodoxy que faz todo o sentido, gostava muito que toda a gente estivesse a perceber isso.)
