…all the tales of Middle-earth…

…’Then tell us some other tale of the old days,’ begged Sam; ‘a tale about the Elves before the fading time. I would dearly like to hear more about Elves; the dark seems to press round so close.’

‘I will tell you the tale of Tinúviel,’ said Strider, ‘in brief – for it is a long tale of which the end is not known; and there are none now, except Elrond, that remember it aright as it was told of old. It is a fair tale, though it is sad, as are all the tales of Middle-earth…’

-J. R. R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    “The song I can sing is but shreds one remembers of golden imaginings fashioned in sleep, A whispered tale told by the withering embers of old things far off that but few hearts keep.

    Then sudden Felagund there swaying, sang in answer a song of staying, resisting, battling against power, of secrets kept, strength like a tower, and trust unbroken, freedom, escape; of changing and of shifting shape, of snares eluded, broken traps, the prison opening, the chain that snaps. <3<3 Say that ten times fast. =P

    “Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?”
    “A man may do both,” said Aragorn. “For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time.”
