J.R.R. Tolkien in Wikipedia
In life there can be no victor, for death comes to all and smites them.
It needs more to make a king than a piece of elvish glass, or a rabble such as this.

Fair speech may hide a foul heart.
Sleep! I feel the need of it. Yet my axe is restless in my hand. Give me a row of orc-necks and room to swing and all weariness will fall from me!
Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice.
(March 26, 1874 - January 29, 1963)
