My favourite quote is, “I will not say do not weep; for not all tears are an evil”. I hope to introduce my grandchildren to The Hobbit and LOTR”. In a few years. Reply Dan Cruver on June 22, 2017 at 1:19 pm That is one of my favorite quotations as well. I’m looking forward to introducing my grandchildren one day to The Hobbit and LotR too.

It was not yet gone, but it was getting buried: the memory of the high and the perilous. But you cannot teach that sort of thing to a whole people quickly.” – Unfinished Tales of Numenor Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
