I thought it might be amusing to see if I could collect a quotation a day -
that is, not to go looking for them, but spot them in passing.
This is Friday's - found in Waterstones in Brighton. I should have taken a picture...
It was displayed above a pile of travel books
"Not all who wander are lost" - St Augustine
It sounded familiar (and I haven't summoned the mental strength and stamina for embarking upon the writings of St Augustine yet).
Here we go;
- 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 the 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.
- It is from "The Lord of the Rings" by Tolkein. Not St Augustine!
- Try this link to checkout other travel quotes... where you will read that St Augustine appears to have disapproved of travelling...
- Today is Sunday - I've skipped church - again. Hey - not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither. Deep roots are not reached by the frost. Amen.
