quotation of the day

Art-Painting-Mythology-Hell-probably-Italian1

“We must picture Hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.”

– G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

One thought on “quotation of the day

  1. We like to think of heaven and hell as places, as pictured in the piece of art , but I like to think of them as states of being. What Chesterton describes here is something we all perpetuate or fall victim to at some point in our lives. For me it is Christ who helps me navigate the way between these states thereby preventing me from ending up stuck in Hell.
