"All that is gold does not glitter
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old who is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost. 

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the darkness shall spring;
Renewed be the blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."
- Bilbo Baggins

I love this poem so much! I’m going to tell you a secret. When I was applying for unis a couple years ago, the uni I’m currently attending kept sending me packages in the mail with information and sometimes just random stuff. And one of those packages had a little bookmark with a line from this poem on it. Now, I’m not saying that’s the only reason I chose this uni over the others, but it definitely contributed! That is how deeply my love for this poem goes!
