J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Bernard Malamud
“There comes a time in a man's life when to get where he has to go--if there are no doors or windows--he walks through a wall.”
Bernard Malamud

Friedrich Nietzsche
“It is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them!”
Friedrich Nietzsche
