A Defense of Nonsense - an essay by G.K. Chesterton (From his early book 'The Defendant')

Quotes and comments;

''So long as we regard a tree as an obvious thing, naturally and reasonably created for a giraffe to eat, we cannot properly wonder at it. It is when we consider it as a prodigious wave of the living soil sprawling up to the skies for no reason in particular that we take off our hats, to the astonishment of the park-keeper.''
- and I take my hat off to anyone who could see a tree as a wave of the soil. [:=)
