QUOTE | FROM J. R. R. Tolkien




Have you thought of an ending?''Yes, several, and all are dark and unpleasant.''Oh, that won't do! Books ought to have good endings. How would this do: and they all settled down and lived together happily ever after?''It will do well, if it ever came to that.''Ah! And where will they live? That's what I often wonder.
