immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings
Glorfindel, looking into the gathering dark, said: ‘Do not pursue him! He will not return to this land. Far off yet is his doom, and not by the hand of m a n will he fall.’
"It’s like in the great stories, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. Because they were holding on to something… There’s some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.”
Happy Hobbit Day!
On this day, 21 September, in 1937, The Hobbit was published for the first time.
77 year ago, the world was graced with the words of J. R. R. Tolkien and our first look into Middle Earth. Through the years the word “hobbit” became cherished and well known.
I will never be able to say how much this book, and all Tolkien books, mean to me. I am forever thankful for their existence.
