Thus Quoth – 5.14.11

05.14.2011

GK Chesterton:

It is a good sign in a nation when things are done badly.  It shows that all the people are doing them.  And it is a bad sign in a nation when such things are done very well, for it shows that only a few experts and eccentrics are doing them, and that the nation is merely looking on.

[…]

As long as the game was a game, everybody wanted to join in it.  When it becomes an art, everyone wants to look at it.

All Things Considered, ‘Patriotism and Sport’
