“Little by Little, One Travels Far”

This is a quote by our esteemed Professor, none other than JRR Tolkien.

Yesterday would have been his 118th birthday, old even by hobbit reckoning as I’m sure Bilbo recently has been telling him. I don’t have anything witty or insightful to offer you today so let’s mull over another quote:

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
