On this day in 1973, J.R.R. Tolkien passed beyond the circles of this world.
"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."
Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid. Langston Hughes, The Collected Poems (via feellng)
