Glitter and deep roots: dissecting this quote by J.R.R. Tolkein
"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost."
- J. R. R. Tolkien at BrainyQuote
"All that is gold does not glitter"
How true. The most important things in life cannot fit into your bank account.
"Not all those who wander are lost"
None one really has any idea what life has in store for them. That doesn't mean that they can't go forward with resolve, beliefs and purpose.
"The old that is strong does not wither"
Age alone does not have to effect resolve.
"Deep roots are not reached by the frost"
I love this one. The tree with the strongest, deepest roots will better weather the storm. And storms will most definitely come.
I love this quote!
