Now that was a lovely thing to imbibe... [In reply to] Can't Post

again. It renews just why we are here, one who is an actuary of the sublime.

"we will be publishing articles like this on a regular basis. We hope you enjoy it!" .

The green books contain so many fine sentiments such as our Tehanu, our Quickbeam (who i nickname 'Cliff Bar', which is actually a divine cookie used in endurance sports) and our Anwyn, as a fine example here quotes Dr Birzer from his book 'Sanctifing Myth':

''If we can't be loving, we can't be anything. Every one in the fellowship was loving. Gandalf willing to sacrifice himself-an act of love. Frodo , same thing. Aragorn confronting Sauron was loving. I think we do our duty, see what happens, and not be too impatient."

For me, the crux of the ultimate success of the fellowship rests in this line. I will be looking forward to the installments. A gold star who thought of this too:).

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
ó J.R.R. Tolkien
