Tolkien Quotations

ARAGORN: "What do you fear, lady?"

ÉOWYN: "A cage. To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recalls or desire."
The Two Towers

Gandalf: "End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it."
The Return of the King

"'Hail Gurthang! No lord or loyalty dost thou know, save the hand that wieldeth thee. From no blood wilt thou shrink. Wilt thou therefore take Túrin Turambar, wilt thou slay me swiftly?"
And from the blade rang a cold voice in answer: "Yea, I will drink thy blood gladly, that so I may forget the blood of Beleg my master,and the blood of Brandir slain unjustly. I will slay thee swiftly."
The Silmarillion


"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear.

"This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten."
DH Lawrence

"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction."
Blaise Pascal

"Once you label me you negate me."
Soren Kierkegaard

"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit."
Khalil Gibran

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 3, 2014, 1:23 PM

I am so excited to see spring is here!  Although our winter was much drier than normal, it seems to have been as long as any other.  Now we have typical spring weather; rain followed by sunny periods, and a slight chill lingering in the air.  Even my cat has been lolling around outside.

My garden is still a bit of a mess, but that's easily rectified.  An afternoon with the garden gloves on and it will shape up nicely.  I'm a bit gung ho this year, having pretty much ignored the yard for the past couple of years.  What the deer haven't destroyed; neglect has done the job.

I went a bit wild and ordered a ton of perennials from the Vesey catalogue: delphiniums and such.  I can't wait until they arrive so I can put them into the ground.  I'm also replacing my old, rotten flower boxes with new ones and I have a multitude of ideas regarding annuals. 

Otherwise things have been plugging along at the usual pace, and time has flown by again.  I hope everybody is enjoying the season.
