On J.R.R. Tolkien’s Birthday…

January 3, 2011

A hearty “thank you” for all the memories, and for a life full of devotion, wit, and fantastic imagination on his 119th birthday.

I don’t drink myself, but I’d happily raise a tall glass of milk for this grandfather of fantasy today!

Tolkien Wisdom: “I do not love the bright sword for it’s sharpness, nor the arrow for it’s swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”

  1. Hey Texcap, I don’t drink either, but I would raise a glass to him myself seeing how Tolkien’s my favorite writer 🙂


  2. I think I recall reading that he was your favorite fantasy writer, very cool. I think my Top 3 reads: C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald & J.R.R Tolkien…with Brandon Sanderson quick on their heels.
