Wednesdays with Words :: The Two Towers



Linking up with Cindy at Ordo Amoris for Wednesdays with Words.


From The Two Towers, when Pippin tries to describe Treebeard's eyes:

One felt as if there was an enormous well behind them, filled up with ages of memory and long, slow, steady thinking; but their surface was sparkling with the present: like sun shimmering on the outer leaves of a vast tree, or on the ripples of a very deep lake. 

This is probably one of my favorite passages of all time!
