“On Lying In Bed” excerpt from “Tremendous Trifles” (1909) by Gilbert Keith Chesterton

“Let us pay a little more attention to these possibilities of the heroic and unexpected. I dare say that when I get out of this bed I shall do some deed of an almost terrible virtue”.

~Gilbert Keith Chesterton

On Lying in Bed excert from Tremendous Trifles (1909) by Gilbert Keith Chesterton challenges the prevalent custom of rigid adherence to insignificant customs and simultaneous flexibility of basic moral principals. Highly recommended reading!
