“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
As the journey gets harder and we wish we did not go through difficult times, we should always take solace from Gandalf’s wise words: “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.“
