Why let C.S. Lewis have all the fun.

I will start it off.

Belloc, an epitaph:

When I am dead, I hope it may be said: His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

I just tripped over this bit in the latest issue of Gilbert magazine.

Within an article on Chesterton's various reviews of poets, plays, and novels:
GKC wrote:Puritanism is a disguise that did not really fit the Scottish temperament; and that fact, when once understood, explains a large number of curious facts in Scottish history; and not least the rather intoxicated idolatry that has surrounded Robert Burns.

Let a man walk ten miles steadily on a hot summer's day along a dusty English road, and he will soon discover why beer was invented."
