Dale Ahlquist's was really good, it was really funny too. He read the last paragraph of the Charles Dickens book, which talks mostly about eternity. Then he said"That may be the end of the book but it is not the end of this talk, you are just beginning to learn the meaning of eternity."(:
And then of course there are the actual Chesterton quotes that are always hilarious. Like this one:
The strength of Cromwell was that he cared for religion, but the strength of relgion was that it did not care for Cromwell.
But it wasn't all laughter, he was explaining to us about hope. That hope isn't pessimism or optimism but that it is a the happy medium between these extremes. Of course he had many great Chesterton quotes to go with it and I'll try do my best to remember them.
The optimist is the person who thinks all the world is good except the pessimist and the pessimist is the person who thinks that all the world is bad except himself.
