  • "Though here at journey's end I lie
    In darkness buried deep,
    Beneath all towers strong and high,
    Beneath all mountains steep,
    Still, above all shadows rides the sun,
    And the stars forever dwell,
    So, I will not say the day is done,
    Nor bid the stars farewell."

    --JRR Tolkien
