The Cosmos and the Pessimist

A cosmos one day being rebuked by a pessimist replied, "How can you who revile me consent to speak by my machinery? Permit me to reduce you to nothingness and then we will discuss the matter."

Moral. You should not look a gift universe in the mouth.

[From a letter written by GKC, quoted in Maisie Ward's Gilbert Keith Chesterton 49-50]
