quotes for 2020 # 31

An on going series of a quote a day from those most worthy of individuals, writers…  Disclaimer not all quotes are meant to inspire… Not all comments I make upon them are entirely honest either, occasionally Hannibal writes them…

Grand Papa Tolkien, daddy of us all, the bringer of elves, dwarfs and short-arse food obsessed heroes. Without him much of modern fantasy might never have been written.  At least not quite as it was. He was a man who saw a lot in his life, from world wars he envisioned what evil was, what comradeship should be and for all his prose has it flaws he has fired the imagination of generation after generation with dreams of worlds other than our own, of wizards and wonders.

And in most of us an utter loathing of Tom Bomberdil…

He was also fond of the on uplifting quote, of which this is one of my favourites, because there is always something around the next corner, and all roads eventually lead home but you have to journey there, before you can come back again …
