Top 10 Best J. R. R. Tolkien Quotes

#10

 

Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#9
 

If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#8
 

We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#6
 

Not all those who wander are lost.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#5
 

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#4
 

A man that flies from his fear may find that he has only taken a short cut to meet it.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#3
 

Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?... If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#2
 

War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN

 
#1
 

Never laugh at live dragons.

--J. R. R. TOLKIEN
