I came across your web site while doing some searching on the Internet for an English essay that I remember reading in my junior high school days. I am fifty years old now and I have been searching for the book with that essay for a long time now! I know the essay's title was "On Chasing One's Hat" and by searching, I have found out that it must have been written by G K Chesterton. I was wondering if you know the name of the book this essay was in so I could try to find it somewhere, or maybe you know where I could read it online somewhere.

I myself don't know but if any of you do, please comment and let me know and I will email it back. Thanks.

I think it is in 'All things considered'. Anyway, I've found this webpage where you can read it:

Chesterton quotes Fr. Raymond!!! Or are they both quoting someone else? The "wine is good with everything else but water" quote; Chesterton mentions it in this essay and it's in Fr. Raymond's book Three Religious Rebels. (Not to mention Chesterton's song about Noah). Does anyone know who wrote it first?
