Zitate von J.R.R. Tolkien

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.
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourself in, but you cannot for ever fence it out.
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
Elen sìla lùmenn' omentielvo.
(A star shines on the hour of our meeting)
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
Short cuts make long delays.
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
And he that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
