Daily Catholic Quote — J.R.R. Tolkien

A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith

“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 Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring;
Included in Gandalf’s letter to Frodo – claimed to have been written by Bilbo)
