G.K.C.-Kindness or Goodness?

SIL-Your correspondent who wrote on G.K.C. in a recent issue states that Chesterton wrote that "Kindness is God's last word." 1 am thoroughly sceptical, and need chapter and verse if I am to be convinced, Has your correspondent, perhaps, misquoted the closing lines of "A Ballade of an Anti-Puritan"?

. . . song, that is a sturdy chord, And hope, lhat is a hardy shrub, And goodness, that is God's last word Will someone take me to a pub?

Going hack to the days when we tried to learn logic, we remember that all A is B. but not all B is A. "Kindness" is not a big enough word.
