The Fellowship of the Ring: Five Wise and Profound Quotes
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. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life.
The sheer scope and scale of the world that Tolkien created — Middle Earth — is quite incredible, which is one of the reasons it has stood the test of time, but there is also great wisdom to be found among the pages of the books and in the recent movie adaptations. Here are some of our favourite, most inspiring, and most thought-provoking quotes from the various tales. For if joyful is the fountain that rises in the sun, its springs are in the wells of sorrow unfathomable at the foundations of the Earth. Love not too well the work of thy hands and the devices of thy heart. 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.
