Day 3: My Favorite Quote

“Not All Who Wander Are Lost” — J. R. R. Tolkien

I like this quote because it’s simple and classic. It captures the essence of going on a journey for the experience versus the final destination. It’s also reminds me of my study abroad trip to New Zealand in 2013, and the way that I moved to Utah for the adventure rather than just the destination (or reason in this case, the internship). I also love to travel and explore.

Not All Who Wander 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.

–A Poem by J. R. R. Tolkien
