The Picture of Dorian Gray Preface书摘

The highest as the lowest form of criticism is a mode of autobiography.

There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.

No artist desires to prove anything. Even things that are true can be proved.

All art is quite useless.

“Oh, it’s quite simple. If you are a friend, you speak the password, and the doors will open.”– Gandalf

“Well, what can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on much as it has this past Age, full of its own comings and goings, scarcely aware of the existence of Hobbits, for which I am very thankful.”– Gandalf

“For the time will soon come when Hobbits will shape the fortunes of all.”– Galadriel

“A day may come when the courage of men fails… but it is not this day.”– Aragorn

“But in the end it’s only a passing thing, this shadow; even darkness must pass.”– Sam

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”– Bilbo

“He often used to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep and every path was its tributary. “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,” he used to say. “You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no telling where you might be swept off to.”– Frodo

“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”– Thorin

“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”– Faramir

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”– Gandalf

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.”– Gandalf

“Such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.”– Elrond

“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost.”– Bilbo
