The Highest Form of Thought

“I do not, in my private capacity, believe that a baby gets his best physical food by sucking his thumb; nor that a man gets his best moral food by sucking on his soul, and denying its dependence on God or other good things. I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”

~ G.K. Chesterton

  1. Hmm, good quote. You could tear it apart for days. :)

    1 Corinthians 3:2
    “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to recieve it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able….”

    Thanks for the quote, Scribe!
