John Ronald Reuel Tolkien(January 3, 1892 – September 2, 1973), aka JRR Tolkien was an English fantasy author, best known for The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Here are JRR Tolkien’s top ten greatest quotes:
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.
A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
I will not walk backward in life.
You can only come to morning through the shadows.
It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.
It’s the job that’s never started that takes the longest to finish.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.
Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.
Thank you JRR Tolkien!
