end of 2021


The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. There is radiance and glory in the darkness, could we but see; and to see, we have only to look. And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you; not quite as the world sends greetings, but with profound esteem, and with that prayer for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away.

Fra Giovanni, A letter to Contessa Allagia Dla Aldobrandeschi, Christmas Eve 1513


‘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.’

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring    


Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Winston S. Churchill
