On the Forbidden Letters - by David E.

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 frost. (LoTR)

HwŠt! We Gardena in geardagum,
■eodcyninga, ■rym gefrunon,
hu ­a Š■elingas ellen fremedon.
Oft Scyld Scefing scea■ena ■reatum, (Beowulf)

So. The Spear-Danes in days gone by,
and the kings who ruled them had courage and greatness.
We have heard of those princes' heroic campaigns (Translation)

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. (LoTR)

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Genesis)

 ... ■Št wŠs god cyning! ...
­Šm eafera wŠs Šfter cenned,
... ■one god sende ... folce to frofre ... (Beowulf)

And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us,
to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand,
and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden,
to till the ground from whence he was taken.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the
garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned
every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. (Genesis)

I trow I hung on that windy Tree
nine whole days and nights,
stabbed with a spear, offered to Odin,
myself to mine own self given,
high on that Tree of which none hath heard
from what roots it rises to heaven.(The HavamÓl)

Jesus said, "I have cast fire upon the world,
and look, I'm guarding it until it blazes."
(Gospel of Thomas)

I, THOTH, the Atlantean, master of mysteries,
keeper of records, mighty king, magician,
living from generation to generation,
being about to pass into the halls of Amenti,
set down for the guidance of
those that are to come after,
these records of the mighty wisdom of Great Atlantis.

In the great city of KEOR on the island of UNDAL,
in a time far past, I began this incarnation.
Not as the little men of the present age did
the mighty ones of Atlantis live and die,
but rather from aeon to aeon did they renew
their life in the Halls of Amenti where the river of life
flows eternally onward. (Emerald Tablets of Thoth)

"Ash nazg durbatul˙k,
ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulűk
agh burzum-ishi krimpatul." (LoTR)

The change in the wizard's voice was astounding.
Suddenly it became menacing, powerful, harsh as stone.
A shadow seemed to pass over the high sun,
and the porch for a moment grew dark.
All trembled, and the Elves stopped their ears.
"Never before has any voice dared to utter the words of that tongue
in Imladris, Gandalf the Grey," said Elrond, as the shadow passed and the company breathed once more.
"And let us hope that none will ever speak it here again," answered Gandalf. (LoTR)

"I will take the Ring," he said,
"though I do not know the way."
Elrond raised his eyes and looked at him.........
"This is the hour of the Shire-folk, when they arise
from their quiet fields,
to shake the towers and counsels of the Great.
Who of all the Wise could have foreseen it?" (LoTR)

Now ye assemble, my children,
waiting to hear the Secret of Secrets
which shall give ye power to unfold the God-man,
give ye the way to Eternal life. (Emerald Tablets of Thoth)

"Precious, precious, precious!" Gollum cried. "My Precious! O my Precious!" (LoTR)

"For five hundred years it poisoned his mind." (LoTR)

"Yes, yes," said Gollum.
"All dead, all rotten. Elves and Men and Orcs. The Dead Marshes.
There was a great battle long ago, yes, so they told him
when SmÚagol was young,
when I was young before the Precious came. It was a great battle.
Tall men with long swords, and terrible Elves, and Orcses shrieking.
They fought on the plain for days and months at the Black Gates.
But the Marshes have grown since then, swallowed up the graves,
always creeping, creeping. (LoTR)

The Road goes ever on and on
Out from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
Let others follow it who can!
Let them a journey new begin,
But I at last with weary feet
Will turn towards the lighted inn,
My evening-rest and sleep to meet. (LoTR)

At every doorway,
ere one enters,
one should spy round,
one should pry round
for uncertain is the witting
that there be no foeman sitting,
within, before one on the floor (HavamÓl)
