"The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight seeing'." Daniel J. Boorstin
Frodo: "I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had ever happened." Gandalf: "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given you." Tolkien (2)
"A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world: everyone you meet is your mirror." Ken Keyes
