My name is Randall, and I am currently a high school senior. I am 17 years old, and have been raised Catholic all my life. I had been exposed to works by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, but I had never even heard of Chesterton until I stumbled upon the American Chesterton Society site while I was hanging out at Catholic sites.
Reading about him, I knew subconsciously that this was an author I would like. So a few months later, I picked up a copy of Orthodoxy at the bookstore, and by the end, I was hooked. I was exclaiming, "This Chesterton guy is genius!" So over the past month or two I have been reading some poetry, essays, and one book (The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare). I'm still quite a newbie with Chesterton, but I'm planning to read more of his work as soon as possible. I'm rereading Orthodoxy right now, because I just read it the last time. I want to go more in depth with it.
I would say my two favorite quotes by Chesterton are:
"If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly." - G.K. Chesterton
"Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere." - G.K. Chesterton
Interests: guitar, music, art, reading, writing, video games, computers, basketball, and photography.
