Colonizers of Dreams: A New Favorite Quote

5 May

Just a tidbit today, from the intro of my battered old copy of The Fellowship of the Ring:

“We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers and discoverers—thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses. Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams.”

– Peter S. Beagle

 

Can never reread The Lord of the Rings enough.
