A Book Lovers Problem

Having two books arrive from amazon and not knowing which to start first…

" The curse of mortality. You spend the first portion of your life learning, growing stronger, more capable. And then, through no fault of your own, your body begins to fail. You regress. Strong limbs become feeble, keen senses grow dull, hardy constitutions deteriorate. Beauty withers. Organs quit. You remember yourself in your prime, and wonder where that person went. As your wisdom and experience are peaking, your traitorous body becomes a prison.

-Brandon Mull, Fablehaven"
""The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem."
-Captain Jack Sparrow"

"“Good Morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.

"What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
- J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit"

Tolkien and Lewis…:’)

 

Tolkien and Lewis

""I don't know which option would you choose. I could never advise you on that... no matter what kind of wisdom dictates you the option you pick, no one will be able to tell if it's right of wrong till you arrive to some sort of outcome from your choice. The only thing we're allowed to do is to believe that we won't regret the choice we made."
-Lance Corporal Levi, Attack on Titan"
