Looking


There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after. ~J.R.R. Tolkien

It's funny, you know. We seldom get what we're looking for, and generally don't even recognize it when we do.

Love this quote.

When we seek we will find; however, WHAT we'll find is always the question!!
Great quote from a great man.
