Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We’re in one, of course; but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out loud of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards. And people will say: ‘Let’s hear about Frodo and the Ring’ and they’ll say ‘Oh yes, that’s one of my favorite stories.

J. R. R. Tolkien

Happy Birthday, Mr. Tolkien!

audaria-deactivated20140214 asked: I've been following you for a few weeks now, and I wanted to send you a word of gratitude. During the years, I had somehow lost my way to books, Internet is so everywhere, it can become everything; I didn't even realised I missed books. But with every post, you've given me the love back. The love that I used to have for books, for words, for libraries and for all the people who love to read. So thank you, it's not much in the face of what I regained, but it's sincere. <3

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

Your message is beautiful and inspiring.

Thank you for your lovely words, you gave a whole new meaning to what we do, to our love for this blog, literature, books and words.

From the bottom of my heart: Thank you!

Recieve a heartfelt hugs.

"Each book is a new book. I’ve never written it before and I have to teach myself how to write it as I go along. The fact that I’ve written books in the past seems to play no part in it. I always feel like a beginner and I’m continually running into the same difficulties, the same blocks, the same despairs. You make so many mistakes as a writer, cross out so many bad sentences and ideas, discard so many worthless pages, that finally what you learn is how stupid you are. It’s a humbling occupation."

Paul Auster (via theparisreview)
