Allow me to introduce myself as a fourteen year old Chesterton aficionado.

I got interested in Chesterton by reading The Shadow of the Bear By Regina Doman, when I was...hmmm...between ten and eleven. I casually dove into a collection of Father Brown mysteries, and found, when I emerged into the real world again, I discovered (not much to my surprise) that I was addicted. I've completed Father Brown, read The Everlasting Man, and recently Charles Dickens, the Last of the Great Men, for Chestercon 2006. I've been scavenging Chesterton-Lover blogs to find quotes, like the following:
Daybreak is never-ending Glory; getting out of bed is a never-ending nuisance.
Isn't that true????? This particular gem I got from Margaret. It comes in very handy.

I love your quote, it is so true

Just so you know, that quote is from The Apostle and the Wild Ducks which is a very funny title for a collection of essays. The essay was called "What is Right with the World" and was GKC's answer to his own book What's Wrong with the World.
