A light from the shadows shall spring – 350/366

Who is the strongest person I know?

Goodness, that is a tough one. If I consider strength as a physical trait then I would have to think it is a friend of a friend – but that is just because he has frighteningly YUGE muscles.

If I consider strength of character then I think the answer is so complex that it would involve a number of people, too numerous to name, whom have dealt with something deeply heartbreaking.

 

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
