Frodo's Wisdom

“ Frodo : How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand there is no going back. There are some things that time can not mend. Some hurts that go too deep... that have taken hold.JR TOLKIEN .

A great line by the famous writer of the Lord of the Rings Books, JR TOLKIEN. I might have  chosen another line from these books. The script is great, not just random babbling of a writer. Not just a random plot for an  exciting adventure.
 Tolkien's characters are not shallow, they are not  just fighting an evil , they are fighting for the truth, they are fighting for values. They speak eloquently, they speak wisdom. They speak about life, death, patience, trust, and enduring each other for the sake of one aim.

But the main reason I  chose this above quote , because  I have been wondering about this line  for few days. I have been thinking :

 How do we move on? 
How do we forget? 
How does  the book close ?
  Will we ever open it again? Can we? 
Or the book would be burnt already? 
Can time mend everything?
 Can we actually forgive ?

Questions and Questions. No assured answers. 
Time might tell. And time might conceal. 
But I  am sure I will find the answer either in this life, or later....


  1. No matter what answer you will get, no matter what truth you will reach.
    you have to know that ideas of love and life can be deceiving. and so you will move on without knowing that you are moving on.

  2. Thank you M.N for this comment :)
    I agree with you 100%. Surely Ideas can be deceiving because they change. Ideas simply change. One day you want a boat, the other day you want a house. But values dont change. They are engraved within oneself. A person merely with ideas and without values, is a not a person to be entrusted. :)
    And that is what makes us move on. We move on from things that arent fixed .Just like if we want to sit on a chair, if it is not stable on the ground, we move on and look for another.
