“O! Wanderers in the shadowed land
despair not! For though dark they stand,
all woods there be must end at last,
and see the open sun go past;
the setting sun, the rising sun,
the day’s end, or the day begun,
For east or west all woods must fail …
Fail – even as he said the word his voice faded into silence."
The Fellowship of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings published by Unwin and Allen.
