Let's not get carried away

In Reply To
And, after six years of researching his work, and despite all the quotable, inspiring words of his she could have referenced, she "remembers" and chooses to quote something from him - that he didn't originate?

This woman sounds very peculiar to me.

I'd advise not to base your judgement on a single article in a newspaper. I wrote the following in a comment on Facebook:

Doing a bit of research, it is quite obvious that the author of the article (a David Powell) has "constructed" this article from a news piece first appearing on the website of the Rydal Penrhos School, where Dr Brown appears to be employed (see http://rydalpenrhos.com/news/13/04/lifelong_passion_for_tolkien). Powell has more or less just "copy-pasted", re-arranged the original text, and used a bit of his own imagination. It's a shame, really: in the original article, the fake Tolkien quote appears not to have been provided by Dr Brown, but by the incognito author of the article.
