"I have found that it is the small everyday deed of ordinary folks that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love." ~ Gandalf (J. R. R. Tolkein ~ The Hobbit)"
Another language Tolkien learned was Esperanto, and in early mid-1909 he composed The Book of the Foxrook. This was a sixteen-page notebook, where the "earliest example of one of his invented alphabets" appears. Short texts in this notebook are written in Esperanto.
After leaving King Edward's school, and having formed a Tea Club and Barrovian Society (referring to their fondness for drinking tea in Barrow's Stores near the school and, secretly, in the school library), the members stayed in touch.
In December 1914, they held a "council" in London at Wiseman's home. The result of this meeting was, for Tolkien, a strong dedication to writing poetry.

"There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after." ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again
"All that is gold does not glitter,
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost. ." ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
