Quote of the Day – Famous Writers

A daily quote from a very famous person – usually famous writers or actors

Usually, the very first part of the first stanza of this poem is quoted.

“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever”

But I prefer the last part of the poem;

We have imagined for the mighty dead;
All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.[5]

“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
