Last week’s quote was from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien, Chapter 18: “Lothlorien”.
Spencer J Rothfuss got the right trilogy, and Juliana got the trilogy, book, and author–and some brownie-points for saying The Lord of the Rings is her favorite book series. Great minds think alike! 🙂
Another one of the best books ever written for this week:
” One word. All you’ve been saying is quite right, I shouldn’t wonder. I’m a chap who always liked to know the worst and then put the best face I can on it. So I won’t deny any of what you said. But there’s one thing more to be said, even so. Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things–trees and grass and sun and moon and stars. . . Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that’s a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We’re just babies making up a game, if you’re right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That’s why I’m going to stand by the play-world.”
I always liked this quote! (And, by the way, it’s less weird in context! 🙂 )
