TOLKIEN HAD THE WORDS FOR IT:1 THE HOBBIT

As I seem to be blogging these days by the simple expedient of pasting in stuff other people have written, I thought I’d do that thing all Tolkien followers need to do, and post favourite quotations.

“No!” said Thorin. “There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
