Dedicated to Exploring J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth & Beyond.
"I would draw some of the great tales in fullness,
and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched.
The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole,
and yet leave scope for OTHER MINDS and hands,
wielding paint and music and drama..."
- John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, from a letter written to Milton Waldman, ca. 1951
"He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without
as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.
That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe,
for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition,
seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she
made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their
density at any point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have
our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation."
--Thomas Jefferson, in Writings of Thomas Jefferson,
vol. 6, H.A. Washington, Ed.,1854, pp. 180-181.
