Quotes of the Day

You will have noticed the new feature of this blog, being the "Quote of the Day" in the title bar, which I will continue for as long as I find it interesting or amusing. Technically I guess it should be "Quote of the Day, or Two, or Until I Finally Decide to Change It" since I may not have time to choose a new quote every day, or may just really like a quote so much that I feel it deserves to stick around a little longer (such as this G.K. Chesterton quote, which is one of my favorites).

I may eventually compile a list of all the quotes I've used (maybe I'll just edit them into this post). Occasionally I may use a past or present quote as a prompt for a post.

Today's quote, from Chesterton, is:

The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to close it again on something solid.

My commentary on this for now will simply consist of my 2 corollaries:

1. An open mind is a broken mind. (or at least the perpetually open ones, but that's not as pithy), and

2. Most open minds, like most open mouths, only catch flies.
