G.K. Chesterton on Theosopihsts

May 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

Perhaps I did not dislike Theosophy, but only Theosophists…. But
I did not dislike them because they had erroneous doctrines, when
I myself had no doctrines; or because they had no claim to be
Christians, when in fact they would have claimed Christianity …
much more confidently than I could myself. I disliked them because
they had shiny pebbly eyes and patient smiles. Their patience
mostly consisted of waiting for others to rise to the spiritual
plane where they themselves already stood.
