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

Remember what Bilbo used to say: It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

I do not love the bright sword for it's sharpness, nor the arrow for it's swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien on wisdom, peace, honour, committment, and greater good

"And it is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a
few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the World. We should seek a final end to this menace, even if we do not hope to make one."

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

"Three Rings for Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

"Many that live deserve death.  And some that die deserve life.  Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment.  For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
