“I am dreading the publication, for it will be impossible not to mind what is said. I have exposed my heart to be shot at.” ~Tolkien on the pending publication of Lord of the Rings
“I am not made for perilous quests,” cried Frodo. “I wish I had never seen the Ring! Why did it have to come to me? Why was I chosen?”
“Such questions cannot be answered, “said Gandalf. “You may be sure that it was not for any merit that others do not possess; not for any power or wisdom, at any rate. But you have been chosen and you must therefore use such strength and heart and wits as you have.”
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
