To think

"We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil." 
- J.R.R. Tolkien

What to say about this bright and magnificent man. Every phrase he wrote looks like it was God himself. If we stop to think about life and it's essence, instead of what we gonna buy, what we gonna wear, maybe we can reach a higher level.

That is assuming there is such a thing as a higher level. Also, as much as i love tolkien I'd love to know which myths he was talking about, because across all of them they have almost nothing in common.

Nicely worded quote, not sure if I believe in what he's driving at, though..
