J. R. R. Tolkien's handwritten letter discussing the motivation behind the Lord of the Rings.[x]

"I wrote The Lord of the Rings because I wished ‘to try my hand at a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them."

"We are but shadows
moving lightly, fleetingly
over the surface.
Noticed by some, barely seen,
they look again and we’re gone."

- Michael Boiano  (via seralielle)
