Heaven is a Playground

| QUESTION
I saw a movie about basketball called “Heaven is a playground” and the line is supposed to be from Chesterton. Where’s it from, Dude?

ANSWER
It’s from the essay “Oxford from Without” in the 1908 book, All Things Considered. Chesterton writes, “It might reasonably be maintained that the true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.”
