Chesterton on 1 Thessalonians 5:17

You say grace before meals.
All right.
But I say grace before the concert and the opera,
and grace before the play and pantomime,
and grace before I open a book,
and grace before sketching, painting,
swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing
and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
(G.K. Chesterton)
