I have just started The Two Towers

“'Do I not say truly, Gandalf,' said Aragorn at last,
'that you could go whithersoever you wished quicker than I?
And this I also say: you are our captain and our banner.
The Dark Lord has Nine. But we have One, mightier than they:
the White Rider. He has passed through the fire and the abyss,
and they shall fear him. We will go where he leads.'”
Started I have again and to my joy The Two Towers, second of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Home to arguably my favorite scene in all of Fantasy, the unlooked-for return of Gandalf the White.

"Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon."
