JRR Tolkien quote: Still round the corner there may wait a new road of 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.
For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty forever beyond its reach. Hope Beauty White Star J. Tolkien The Lord of the Rings
Tolkien - Not much is told of Tom Bombadil in Fellowship of the Ring, but there is a collection of poems called 'The Adventures of Tom Bombadil' with more about him. This bit is part of the first poem.
