But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
Bradley J. Birzer, J.R.R. Tolkien's Sanctifying Myth: Understanding Middle-Earth

Bradley J. Birzer, The Ring and the Cross: Christianity and the Lord of the Rings

“From the ’70s and ’80s, the following songs immediately spring to my mind as candidates: “The Battle of Evermore,” “Spirit of Eden,” “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” “Close to the Edge,” “In Your Eyes,” “Thick as a Brick,” “Cinema Show,” “Echoes,” and “The Killing Moon.”
