The Difference Between Belloc and GKC

In his Hilaire Belloc: A Memoir, J. B. Morton quotes Chesterton on the difference between Belloc and himself. He said, "I like gargoyles and every kind of grotesque thing, whereas Belloc likes diagrams and military maps." And Chesterton maintained (to Morton) that Belloc and he differed in every respect—except for their complete agreement about religion and politics. [New York: Sheed and Ward, 1955, p. 78]
