You can only come to the morning through the shadows.
This quote is from J.R.R. Tolkien, one of my favourite authors. It means so much to me, and I think most people can relate to it in some way. Life is often hard, and circumstances leave us wondering if things could ever get better. Sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they do. Sometimes it takes what we would consider too long. But this quote says that the shadows have to happen before you can get to the good times–the morning. Remember that.
