Endless list of favourite films: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001). 

Sam: This is it.

Frodo: This is what?

Sam: If I take one more step, it’ll be the farthest away from home I’ve ever been.

Frodo: Come on, Sam. Remember what Bilbo used to say: “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

Sting is an Elvish dagger believe to be forged in Gondolin during the First Age. Upon its crossguard are engraved, “Maegnas aen estar nin dagnir in yngyl im” which is translated “Maegnas is my name, I am the spider’s bane”. The blade glows blue when orcs or goblins are nearby.

Happy Birthday, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE, FRSL: January 3, 1892 - September 2, 1973

The significance of a myth is not easily to be pinned on paper by analytical reasoning.

Blessed are the legend-makers with their rhyme of things not found within recorded time.

When we can take green from grass, blue from heaven, and red from blood, we have already an enchanter’s power.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil.
