Had to Share a Little Laugh

I was having a stressful afternoon and, very wisely (if not productively) , decided to stop trying to accomplish anything at all and pulled out a Chesterton book from the shelf - As I Was Saying (published in 1936 by Dodd, Mead & Co). This appears to be a collection of essays on subjects ranging from education to blondes. (gotta love that!)

Anyway, here it is...

"There was printed recently a very reasonable and well-poised criticism on the subject of Modern Poetry. Perhaps it took some examples of Modern Poetry a little more seriously than I can manage to do; for the Moderns, who talk about irresistible temptations to love, do not always realize that they themselves torture us with irresistible temptations to laughter."
