holy quotes 11

“Let him not vow to walk in the dark, who has not seen the darkness fall."

“You can only come to the morning through the shadows.”

“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.”

“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.”

“It is the job that is never started that takes longest to finish.”

“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.”

“He who breaks a thing to find out what it is, has left the path of wisdom.”

"I warn you, if you bore me, I shall take my revenge.”

JRR Tolkien, follower of Christ, Oxford don, writer (1892-1973)
