Quote of the Day

I have been informed (thanks to reader Jonathan that one of Google's quotes of the day is from Heretics by Chesterton.

There are no wise few. Every aristocracy that has ever existed has behaved, in all essential points, exactly like a small mob.
G. K. Chesterton, "Heretics", 1905
English author & mystery novelist (1874 - 1936)

Thanks Jonathan.

  1. To be specific: It's from Chapter 12 of Heretics.

    Didn't GKC actually have a liking for mobs, so long as they didn't have pretensions to snobbery?
