“The fact on our side, to be held firmly, is that the tide against us is only a tide; that is, it is a dead thing. Its rapidity is all routine; whereas we, whether we win or drown, who build a dyke, are alive.” G.K. Chesterton in New Witness April 26 1918, quoted in Gilbert Magazine Vol. 17 #4 (Jan.-Feb. 2014)
