All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-11 (visit:611) - J.R.R. Tolkien happiness food

Fairy tale does not deny the existence of sorrow and failure: the possibility of these is necessary to the joy of deliverance. It denies (in the face of much evidence, if you will) universal final defeat...giving a fleeting glimpse of Joy; Joy beyond the walls of the world, poignant as grief.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-11 (visit:529) - J.R.R.

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-11 (visit:818) - J.R.R. Tolkien The Hobbit

It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-11 (visit:729) - J.R.R. Tolkien The Lord of the Rings future
