Says who #12

The detective story differs from every other story in this: that the reader is only happy if he feels a fool. At the end of more philosophic works he may wish to feel a philosopher. But the former view of himself may be more wholesome—and more correct.
- G.K. Chesterton, Generally Speaking (1928)
