Quotes

"All that we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."
―The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien's response to C.S. Lewis when Lewis expressed the opinon that Myths were untimately untrue, from C.S. Lewis and the Catholic Church, by Josepth Pearce. Tolkien later said he could not have finished Lord of the Rings without Lewis's encouragement. Lewis, in turn, credited his final conversion to Christianity, in part, to his conversations with Tolkien.

“Never laugh at live dragons.”                                                              ― The Hobbit
