Today's challenge: A random sentence from your favorite novel.
Well, my favorite novel is THE HOBBIT by J.R.R. Tolkien. I did choose a random sentence at first, one that mentioned Radagast, but I just couldn't use it. I wanted to use my favorite one. So I went from the random to using one of my favorites:
...said Thorin "There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended with measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world..."
That sentence has always gotten me right in the heart, ever since I was a little kid. Thorin went through all the fuss and angry upsets to get his stupid mountain and hoard of treasure, only to learn at the end of his life that he had thrown away one of the dearest treasures any person could ask for: friendship and a happy life. At least he had the chance to make it right. That's more than what many people in this life are able, or even willing, to do.
