Happy Birthday, J.R.R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, January 3, 1892 - September 2, 1973

Born on this day in 1892.

“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
