Kill

"For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty forever beyond its reach." - J. R. R. Tolkien, fully John Ronald Reuel Tolkien

"I do not know what is happening. The reason of my waking mind tells me that great evil has befallen and we stand at the end of days. But my heart says nay; and all my limbs are light, and a hope and joy are come to me that no reason can deny... I do not believe that darkness will endure!" - J. R. R. Tolkien, fully John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
