all we have is right now



"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
— J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1))








“Little by little, one travels far”
― J.R.R. Tolkien



“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Fellowship of the Ring





“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Fellowship of the Ring





“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.”
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings




“There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.”
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Two Towers





“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings

this post has reminded me of my love for the lord of the rings:
"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."
— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring.
lovely!
