Lines from Tolkien
Today I will be sharing some of my favorites lines from The Fellowship of the Ring. :)
"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 judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
"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."
"A hunted man sometimes wearies of distrust and longs for friendship."
"'But I am the real Strider, fortunately,' he said, looking down on them with his face softened by a sudden smile. 'I am Aragorn son of Arathorn; and if by life or death I can save you, I will.'"
"'Oh, that won't do!' Bilbo said. 'Books ought to have good endings. How would this do: and they all settled down and lived happily ever after?'
'It will do well, if it ever comes to that,' said Frodo.
'Ah!' Sam said. 'And where will they live? That's what I often wonder.'"
I could go on, but I won't. :)
Tolkien wrote such beautiful lines. He definitely was a very poetic author.
Tomorrow I will be sharing about my favorite character in "The Lord of the Rings"!! Stay tuned!
