Remembering J.R.R. Tolkein

J.R.R. Tolkein was born January 3, 1892.  Why not stop by Killingworth Library and revisit the works of this beloved author? (We also have the movies!)  In the meantime, some of our favorite quotes follow:

Not all those who wander are lost.
 
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
 
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
 
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
 
It’s a dangerous business going out your front door.
 
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
 
Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.
 
Little by little, one travels far.
 
Never laugh at live dragons.
 
It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.
