Hope is not victory

I also enjoy books.. So I’ll also share some book excerpts I liked 🙂
Below one is by ‘Gandalf the White’ from ‘Lord Of The Rings’ !

‘The morning is wearing away,’ he said. ‘Soon we must go.’
‘Do we go to find our friends and to see Treebeard?’ asked Aragorn.
‘No,’ said Gandalf. ‘That is not the road that you must take. I have spoken words of hope. But only of hope. Hope is not victory. War is upon us and all our friends, a war in which only the use of the Ring could give us surety of victory.
It fills me with great sorrow and great fear: for much shall be destroyed and all may be lost.
I am Gandalf – Gandalf the White, but Black is mightier still.’
