Quote of the Week: J.R.R. Tolkein.

Jan 04

I am a day late, but happy birthday to J.R.R. Tolkein.  I Googled “JRR Tolkein quotes” and came up with so many that meant something to me. Such as, “All that wander are not lost” and “Little by little one travels far.”  But the one that stood out to me the most was this one, “A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.”
