A Deep and Profound Respect for Tolkien
In my quirky need to research all authors, I had to research Tolkien. I already respect the man. Deeply and profoundly respect the man. He was a man of imagination, wonder, and intelligence. Yes, that’s the sort of man I can respect deeply!
Then I found this quote, which just summed up that I simply am inclined to adore this author:
“Children aren’t a class. They are merely human beings at different stages of maturity. All of them have a human intelligence which even at its lowest is a pretty wonderful thing, and the entire world in front of them.”
– J.R.R. Tolkien
Any man that finds children’s minds that amazing, like I do, is definitely going to be on my top list of favorite authors. I can feel it in my bones!
