“Not all those who wander are lost.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. 'It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,' he used to say. 'You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“I am old, Gandalf. I don't look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can't be right. I need a change, or something.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

"Ah! And where will they live? That's what I often wonder.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

J.R.R. Tolkien

J.R.R. Tolkien
“El camino sigue y sigue
desde la puerta.
El camino ha ido muy lejos,
y que otros lo sigan si pueden.
Que ellos emprendan un nuevo viaje,
pero yo al fin con pies fatigados
me volveré a la taberna iluminada,
al encuentro del sueño y el reposo.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Sarah Arthur
“The lesson is this: When the road gets dark and all hope seems lost, there's nothing to do but keep going. We, like Bilbo, must keep up our "hobbitry in heart." Even more important, as people of faith, we recognize that we are not alone. Whatever happens from this point on, we put our trust in God. And we go on.”
Sarah Arthur, Walking with Bilbo

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All your long years we have been friends. Trust me as you once did, let it go”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Sarah Arthur
“Like Gandalf, God knows the battle going on inside our hobbitlike selves, the wrestling match between the Baggins and the Took. The Baggins side of us takes our creature comforts for granted. We assume these comforts are part of the terms and conditions outlined in the job description Jesus offers when he says, "Follow me." But God never said anything about discipleship being comfortable. He's more interested in coaxing the Took side of us to the fore, the side that's willing to endure a little hardship for the sake of the final destination. When we learn to live without, we discover what we're really made of.”
Sarah Arthur, Walking with Bilbo

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Si addormentò subito profondamente, dimenticando tutte le sue preoccupazioni fino al mattino. Per la precisione sognò pane, burro e marmellata.”
J.R.R. Tolkien
