All that is gold does not glitter...
At the moment I'm having another read through the Lord of the Rings trilogy; I last read it ten years ago although it doesn't feel it!
Enjoying it more the second time around, it's good to learn about the history of middle earth and more information about the characters I'd forgotten.
The Riddle of Strider by Bilbo Baggins
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
