From The Father Brown Stories

As a would-be artist fed up with both good and bad taste, I'm not sure I wholly agree, and as a believer in the sensus fidelium, I'm not sure I wholly disagree, either, but it's worth quoting:
"Father Brown is a Philistine," said the smiling Smith.

"I have some sympathy with the tribe," said Father Brown. "A Philistine is only a man who is right without knowing why."

~GKC, "The Song of the Flying Fish," The Secret of Father Brown
