"It’s a dangerous business, Frodo..."

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” — J.R.R. Tolkien


I’ve always loved this quote. I read the books … must be thirty years ago, now. And this one sticks with me. It’s said by one of the great characters of all time (Gandalf! Gandalf!) and it just says to me, in such a simple earnest way, you are not master of tomorrow.
