Ordinary

G.K.Chesterton describes the average – ordinary – person as one who desires “an active and imaginative life,” a life that is “picturesque  and full of poetical curiosity,” not a blank existence, but one full of “variety and adventure.” It is this sense of ordinary that I aim to instill in my children. For as “the man in the yacht” says, “We need to be happy in this wonderland without once being merely comfortable.”

All quotes are from G.K. Chesterton’s Orthodoxy.
