Happy Birthday…

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.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

I should like to save the Shire, if I could – though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them.

The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot forever fence it out.

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

Myth and fairy-story must, as all art, reflect and contain in solution elements of moral and religious truth (or error), but not explicit, not in the known form of the primary ‘real’ world.

J.R.R. Tolkien – whose birthday we remember on this date.
