“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory….

…If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?….

If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then…

..it’s our plain duty to escape…

And to take as many people with us as we can!”  

―    J.R.R. Tolkien
