Neglecting Fads

“You can find all the new ideas in the old books; only there you will find them balanced, kept in their place, and sometimes contradicted and overcome by other and better ideas. The great writers did not neglect a fad because they had not thought of it, but because they had thought of it and of all the answers to it as well.” --G.K. Chesterton

Thank you for the quote Dr. Grant. It inspired a post on my blog.

Merry Christmas.

That is a great quote. I think it will wind its way into a sermon I'm working on at present.
