Once war has been undertaken, no peace is made by pretending there is no war.

It would help if Marco Polo bothered to be more educated about things he noted than letting his flight of fancy take the lead. It doesn't help when he calls crocodile a man eating serpent, Asian rhinoceros a unicorn, and added a fictional king in his book to give a cultural nod to missionaries. :ira:

A man should avoid these six like a leaking boat in the ocean: a teacher who does not teach, a priest who has not studied, a king who fails to protect, a spouse who is abusive, a cowherd who wants a village, and a barber who wants a forest. -Vidura

"To save a family, abandon a man; to save the village, abandon a family; to save the country, abandon a village; to save the soul, abandon the earth."


great quote, how about:

“Not all who wonder are lost”
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.

Written by Bilbo for Aragorn. I love LOTR.

YES Tolkien is the best, all of it! :D

I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay.

"But faith, by its very definition, requires placing your trust in something that is unseeable and indefinable, accepting as fact something for which there exists no empirical evidence. And so, understandably, we all end up placing our faith in different things because there is no universal truth."
