"There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me."

We all go through stages like this in life. In those moments it is difficult to find something positive and few things are of consolation. However, giving in to hopelessness and despair will sink us even further . We need a lifeline to hold onto to get afloat. Ancient philosophy can be that beacon that illuminates us in the midst of the storm and gives us the strength we need to get ahead.
“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” - M.A

I have boiled it down to seven quotes which meant the most to me as I read it, with the first one being the title to this article.
The Lord Of The Rings is a wonderful classic.
I watched the first movie in the trilogy in 2003 when the last film came out. While everything amazed me, it was the scenes with Gollum and his greed and the subsequent destruction because of the precious ring that really stayed with me.
