"It is the job that is never started that takes longest to finish." - J.R.R. Tolkien

"A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities." - J.R.R. Tolkien

"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." - J.R.R. Tolkien

"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; renenwed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king." - J.R.R. Tolkien

"Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate." - J.R.R. Tolkien

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." - J.R.R. Tolkien

"Even the smallest person in the world can change the course of the universe." - J.R.R. Tolkien
