Not all those who wander are lost

My colleague at work has this quote in her signature. It is from  "All That is Gold Does Not Glitter" that is a poem written by J. R. R. Tolkien for his great novel The Lord of the Rings. It describes Aragorn, son of Arathorn. The poem reads:
    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king.

    1. Nah, Leigh. It is not. It's scary and makes you very insecure, to be lost in a maze.
