“That the things common to all men are more important than the things peculiar to any man.  Ordinary things are more valuable than extraordinary things; nay, they are more extraordinary.  Man is something more awful than men; something more strange.  The sense of the miracle of humanity itself should be always more vivid to us than any marvels of power, intellect, art, or civilization.  The mere man on two legs as such, should be felt as something more heartbreaking than any music and more startling than any caricature.”


– G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
