Happy Birthday, J.R.R. Tolkien

Happy 123rd Birthday, to John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. Born January 3, 1892, in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

“All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,

A light from the shadows shall spring;

Renewed shall be blade that was broken,

The crownless again shall be king.”

― The Fellowship of the Ring
