By Elizabeth Drake

“If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much
merrier world.”

2. A single dream
“A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.”

3. Paradigm shift
“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost."

4. Good worth fighting for
“There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.”
- The Two Towers

5. All we have to decide
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
- The Fellowship of the Ring

6. You cannot keep the world out
“The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot
forever fence it out.”
- The Fellowship of the Ring

7. Wisdom
“The wise speak only of what they know.”

8. Morning is reached through night
“You can only come to the morning through the shadows.”

9. I don't know you"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."
- The Fellowship of the Ring

10. Looking
"There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after."
- The Hobbit
