Not all those who wander are lost.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
It's a dangerous business going out your front door.
It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish.
Courage is found in unlikely places.
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
Little by little, one travels far.
Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.
J. R. R. Tolkien, was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor who is best known as the author of the classic high-fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.
After Tolkien's death, his son Christopher published a series of works based on his father's extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion. These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings form a connected body of tales, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about a fantasy world called Arda, and Middle-earth within it. Between 1951 and 1955, Tolkien applied the term legendarium to the larger part of these writings.
