I Open at the Close: Some Tolkien Quotes to Inspire

So… It’s been terribly, horribly quiet around here — but the plus side is I have plenty of exciting adventures and tips to share.

It’s just been a bit of a whirlwind, but oh there will be Things on the horizon.

And a very, very important Thing is that today is the release of The Desolation of Smaug (And it happens to be my birthday, yay!) Another year older, not necessarily wiser, but eager to keep on pushing forward–and of course, very, very excited for Smaug. I’ve only heard good things (And arm-flails) so far, so I simply cannot wait to see it for myself! (Expect a review)

And, with that errata out of the way… Without further preamble, let’s get on with what you’ve all been waiting a rather long time for: Some inspirational quotes to close out the week :3 Home is behind, the road is ahead!

I Open at the Close: End of the Week Inspiring Quotes V (Kendo themed!)

Hello everyone~ I hope you’re all excited for this kind of cloudy but otherwise nice start to the NYC Comic Con Weekend! o v o I am particularly excited for tomorrow, but more on that in a minute — you’re all here for this week’s round of inspiring quotes!

This week is special, because this weekend is the annual Cornell tournament, and university-aged kendoka are making their way upstate as we speak! o w o It’s very exciting, and was one of my highlights about undergrad–alas, I can only cheer on my team from afar, but, I do wish them the best! がんばって!Give it your all, guys!

And try not to get injured, please thank

So today’s round of quotes take a page from Miyamoto Musashi–like him, hate him, or think his quotes are taken out of context (More on that on another post)–the author of the famous Book of Five Rings, the must-have text for kenjutsu, martial arts, and strategy.  Definitely worth a read-through if you’re currently someone interested in kendo!

And now with that errata out of the way, let’s get on to the quotes:
