LOTR quote :)  
I thought I would post one of my favorite quotes from the LOTR trilogy.


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 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.



Was this said by Gandalf?

From Wikipedia:
"The poem appears twice in the The Lord of the Rings' first book, The Fellowship of the Ring. Firstly, it appears in chapter ten "Strider" in Gandalf's letter to the hobbits in Bree, before they know that Strider (Aragorn) is the subject of the verse. It is repeated by Bilbo at the Council of Elrond. He whispers to Frodo that he wrote it many years before, when Aragorn first revealed who he was."

In the movie Arwen said it, but I don't know who really said it!

Beautiful words and a such a pretty glittery castle. :)
