“Christianity got over the difficulty of combining furious opposites, by keeping them both, and keeping them both furious.”
–G. K. Chesterton
“Truth is not in the middle, and not in one extreme, but in both extremes.”
“Most heresies come from espousing one opposite at the expense of the other.”
“Heresy is simply a school of opinion in which something is particularly pressed out of proportion to its logical place.”
“Do not be overrighteous,
neither be overwise—
why destroy yourself?
Do not be overwicked,
and do not be a fool—
why die before your time?
It is good to grasp the one
and not let go of the other.
The man who fears God will avoid all extremes”
