First Paragraph

If I had only one sermon to preach, it would be a sermon against Pride. The more I see of existence, and especially of modern practical and experimental existence, the more I am convinced of the reality of the old religious thesis; that all evil began with some attempt at superiority; some moment when, as we might say, the very skies cracked across like a mirror, because there was a sneer in Heaven. 

- From If I Had Only One Sermon to Preach by G.K. Chesterton
