QuoteSea, the life in a few words
“But that’s not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually - their paths were laid that way, as you put it. But I expect they had lots of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn’t. And if they had, we shouldn’t know, because they’d have been forgotten. We hear about those as just went on - and not all to a good end, mind you; at least not to what folk inside a story and not outside it call a good end”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien (January 03, 1892 - September 02, 1973)

If the whole human race lay in one grave, the epitaph on its headstone might well be: "It seemed a good idea at the time."
~ Rebecca West (December 21, 1892 - March 15, 1983)
The way we've done everything up until this point has been really natural, and we've always equated really hard work with success. And at this point, to start looking at things any other way would be bad, because we do things in a very grass-roots way. It's all been very steady and gradual, so we're just going to stay working hard and playing shows. And I think we're ready for anything.
