J. R. R. Tolkien

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.

“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times.  But that is not for them to decide.  All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

―J.R.R. Tolkien (b. Jan. 3, 1892 – d. Sept. 2, 1973), The Fellowship of the Ring

Fred Rogers

Shortly before Christmas, I watched the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” about the career and legacy of Fred Rogers.  He was an extraordinary individual with a beautiful outlook on life.  If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it.

“Often when you think you’re at the end of something,

you’re at the beginning of something else.”

Fred Rogers (b. March 20, 1928 – d. February 27, 2003)
