What is your favourite quote?

‘All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

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’.

-JRR Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
