Ruthless Reason

Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 12.05.56 AMReason is always a kind of brute force;
those who appeal to the head rather than the heart,
however pallid and polite, are necessarily men of violence.
We speak of ‘touching’ a man’s heart, but we can do
nothing to his head but hit it.
–G.K. Chesterton
