"and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." | 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
"Hobbits are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favorite haunt." | Concerning Hobbits, The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien
"But where our hearts truly lie is in peace and quiet and good, tilled earth. For all hobbits share a love for things that grow. And, yes, no doubt to others, our ways seem quaint. But today of all days, it is brought home to me: It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life. " | Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring (Film)
I want to live a quiet life.
I want to make things, and grow things, and take care of my little family.
I want to sit outside and pray under the stars at night, and take walks around my neighborhood in the mornings.
I want to celebrate my simple life. I want to be a hobbit.
