Today is Tolkien Reading Day! Whether you're snuggled up in your hobbit hole or on the front lines facing the perils of Mordor, we offer this quote:
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
