“She began now to comprehend that he was exactly the man who, in disposition and talents, would most suit her. His understanding and temper, though unlike her own, would have answered all her wishes. It was an union that must have been to the advantage of both: by her ease and liveliness, his mind might have been softened, his manners improved; and from his judgement, information, and knowledge of the world, she must have received benefit of greater importance.”    


“You must understand, young Hobbit, it takes a long time to say anything in Old Entish. And we never say anything unless it is worth taking a long time to say.”

Thanks to the work of Italian photographer Elido Turco we’ve all been invited to an Entmoot. Turco has a great eye for trees and uses a mirroring technique to transform the the natural textures of their trunks and branches into faces that could only belong to J. R. R. Tolkien’s mighty Ents.

              “I think what makes it interesting is when you have a strong woman and the strength is coming from vulnerability and being flawed. And the strength coming from there, as a woman, is more empowering. It’s very interesting to play. For myself as well, being older, I’m so grateful. It’s so rare to have so many women on one show with strength.”

            “In the fast-moving world of “The 100,” if women want something done, they go do it. They’re not a damsel in distress, having to ask for a man go do something for her.”
