Quote of the Week
If there was ever a person packed with words of wisdom, it was J.R.R. Tolkien. You probably know this author from his most famous works, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series. Although he died in 1973, his enchanting characters and complex plot lines live on through his works today. Tolkien was an especially gifted linguist, so the languages spoken by Elves, hobbits, and dwarves are actually working languages that Tolkien created.
This famous author has all kinds of profound and positive things to say. I'm going to include three quotes here:
"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."
"All that is gold does not glitter; not all those that wander are lost."
"It's a job that's never started that takes the longest to finish."
