G K Chesterton on Fiction

“Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity.”
G. K. Chesterton quotes (English born Gabonese Critic, Essayist, Novelist and Poet, 1874-1936)

I have to concede with GKC on this one. I need fiction to live. Reading fiction exercises the imagination and allows me to go where I have not been before. I also like the luxury of literature. Literature is my hobby and I get great pleasure from it. Though ploughing through the Diaries of Virginia Woolf and Reading Proust's masterpiece can sometimes be a slog!

A Great Quote from Charles Dickens

"No one is useless in this world," retorted the Secretary, "who lightens the burden of it for any one else." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens

We can all do something to lighten the burden for another so none of us is useless. When I read this quote I felt strangely uplifted.

Keep well
