I was grasping for how to say something when it occurred to me that G.K. Chesterton had already said it (see #1). Trying to look it up, I was reminded how much else he said so very, very well. Indeed, one of his comments inspired this blog’s name:
Ideas are dangerous, but the man to whom they are least dangerous is the man of ideas. He is acquainted with ideas, and moves among them like a lion-tamer. Ideas are dangerous, but the man to whom they are most dangerous is the man of no ideas. The man of no ideas will find the first idea fly to his head like wine to the head of a teetotaler.
