Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia
Yes, you found the rhymes and they are the answers.
Specifically the first line of Tolkien's would be the solution: All that is gold does not glitter. Some folks now confuse that line with Shakespeare's line. They both caution us about something, but not exactly the same thing.
Shakespeare--> All that glisters is not gold --> All that is gold does not glitter
Both lines are warnings about deception.
Shakespeare is warning that something may give the appearance of worth, but in fact be worthless.
Tolkien is warning that something may appear to be worthless but in fact be of great value.
Great job Elenluin-Menelloth. It's now your turn. You don't need to continue with the two-step format. It's your choice.
