G K Chesterton: Extraordinary spectacle

 “… in the modern world we are primarily confronted with the extraordinary spectacle of people turning to new ideals because they have not tried the old. Men have not got tired of Christianity; they have never found enough Christianity to get tired of. Men have never wearied of political justice; they have wearied of waiting for it.”

G K Chesterton, What’s Wrong with the World.
