A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

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 frost.

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien on gandalf, pippin, and lord of the rings

"The journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain curtain of this world rolls back and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it. White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise." - Gandalf, to Pippin

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien on earth

in

Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have a clean earth to till.  What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien on hope, inspiration, and courage

"The rule of no realm is mine. But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail in my task if anything that passes through this night can still grow fairer or bear fruit and flower again in days to come. For I too am a steward. Did you not know?" -- Gandalf
