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.
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
