The full quote:
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;
renenwed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
Today, September 22 is the birthday of Bilbo Baggins as well as that of his nephew Frodo. Bilbo and Frodo Baggins are the lead characters in both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien’s works are some of the great works of literature and should be read by everyone.
I’m a Tolkien geek, and I believe this.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
