Yes, it's misleading, isn't it?

 I was hoping you'd respond - sorry if any posters here thought I was being anything but sincere. I was asking about this 'quote' some time ago, and a very knowledgable ToRnsib solved the problem for me: it comes, not from JRR, but from the poster for Bakshi's movie. There's a picture here:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LORD-RINGS-ORIGINAL-U-S-ONE-SHEET-MOVIE-POSTER-RALPH-BAKSHI-/110841106540?_trksid=m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252B
FICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D10%26pmod%3D7614783111%26ps%3D50

sorry - that link is way too long; hope it works ok. The relevant part of the hype reads:

"JRR Tolkien triumphed with the perception that a single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities."

So there we are; advertising hype. Though I haven't has any success so far with another so-called quote from the page which JW linked to:

'"Little by little, one travels far." - J.R.R. Tolkien'

If JRR wrote that, I'm a Dutchman!

Smile
