All We Have to Decide


“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

{The Fellowship of the Ring, by J. R. R. Tolkien}

    1. Yeah, and I love the whole idea of this quote, that we don't decide how much time we have or what times we live it, so there's no use in worrying about that stuff, all we have to decide is "what to do with the time that is given us". Gandalf's awesome. Or should I say Tolkien? ;)
