Eclectic antics & observations on design, writing and demolishing the status quo
Dan - as the resident GKC expert can you tell me did he really say 'to be heavy is easy, to be light is hard?' I've thought of using it a couple of times recently and something didn't sound quite right.
Hi Kate - I've never heard that particular quote, although it certainly sounds like him. He did say "Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly," which is a similar sentiment, I suppose.Hmmm... I'll dig around a little and see what I can come up with.
OK, a quick check revealed that indeed he did write "It is easy to be heavy: hard to be light." It's in one of my favorite books by GKC, the hilarious and insightful "Orthodoxy" (terrible title, very funny book).
