Three Quotes

"Remember that if the mighty ones of this world are honoured with noisy eulogies and public fanfare, I am honoured by the silent and attentive heart, by a delicate sacrifice known to no one, by a secret surrender, a tender inner glance. It is in this way, very simply, that My children console Me." --He and I

"'Strange powers have our enemies, and strange weaknesses!' said Théoden. 'But it has long been said: oft evil will shall evil mar.'"  --The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien (For those not privy to Tolkien's excellent and perfectly understandable language, Theoden is speaking the truth that evil always works its own destruction - always.)

"'Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.'" --Elrond in The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien
