Quotation by Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The seven heavens came roaring down for the throats of hell to

And Noah he cocked his eye and said, "It looks like rain, I think,
The water has drowned the Matterhorn as deep as a Mendip mine,
But I don't care where the water goes if it doesn't get into the
wine."
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936), British poet. The Flying Inn (l. 9–12). . .
