Even Darkness Must Pass

Karen re-reads J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  One, like me, who cringes at the sight of Donald Trump, this is clipped on her refrigerator.

“It’s all wrong.  By right we shouldn’t even be here.  But we are.  It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo.  The ones that really mattered.  Full of darkness and danger they were…But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow.  Even darkness must pass.”
