Comparisons

If I set the sun beside the moon,
And if I set the land beside the sea,
And if I set the town beside the country,
And if I set the man beside the woman,
I suppose some fool would talk about one being better.

– G.K. Chesterton, Comparisons. As quoted by Doug Wilson in Future Men (Moscow, Id: Canon Press 2001), 18. Picture courtesy of Ms. Eck.
