Tremendous Trifles book. Chesterton has been called the Prince of Paradox. Chesterton uses his compilation of essays in Tremendous Trifles as a guide to reflect on everyday life. Among this collection: A Piece of Chalk -where a drawing exercise turns into a lesson on the nature of truth, Twelve Men -an explanation on why we have juries made of our peers and not professional jurors, The Dragon's Grandmother -on why we should read fairy tales to our children along with many more endearing reflections.

Let us learn to write essays on a stray cat or a coloured cloud. I have attempted some such thing in what follows; but anyone else may do it better, if anyone else will only try. (Gilbert Keith Chesterton). First Page: TREMENDOUS TRIFLES. They amount to no more than a sort of sporadic diary a diary recording one day in twenty which happened to stick in the fancy the only kind of diary the author has ever been able to keep.

Trifles? No. Chesterton goes deep even when he seems to have a light touch. The essays gathered here are a testament to . Chesterton’s faith-not his faith in religion or a higher power, but in the ability to discover something wonderful in the objects, the experiences, and the people that cross our paths every single day. With his unique brand of humor and insight, he demonstrates how the commonplace adds enormous value to the landscape of daily life.

The Ultimate Lie, privately published, 1910.
