J. R. R. Tolkien Quotes
Here is a good selection of J. R. R. Tolkien quotes.
‘Not all those who wander are lost.’
‘If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world.’
‘Little by little, one travels far.’
‘A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.’
‘I warn you, if you bore me, I shall take my revenge.’
‘Courage is found in unlikely places.’
‘In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory.’
‘You can only come to the morning through the shadows.’
‘Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.’
‘Fairy tale does not deny the existence of sorrow and failure: the possibility of these is necessary to the joy of deliverance. It denies (in the face of much evidence, if you will) universal final defeat…giving a fleeting glimpse of Joy; Joy beyond the walls of the world, poignant as grief.’
‘For myself, I find I become less cynical rather than more–remembering my own sins and follies; and realise that men’s hearts are not often as bad as their acts, and very seldom as bad as their words.’
‘Not even the very wise can see all ends.’
‘The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet it is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: Small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.’
