15 days to the publication of "The Proverbs of Middle-earth"

When Celeborn tells the Fellowship that Maybe the paths that you each shall tread are already laid before your feet, though you do not see them he is both expressing the Elvish unwillingness to be surprised by the unpredictability of life, whilst also prophetically describing the future of the Quest. Likewise, Galadriel’s warning against far-sightedness, Seeing is both good and perilous, is tragically proved true by Saruman’s corruption and Denethor’s descent into despair and madness; both caused by unwise use of the palantíri, the seeing-stones.

From Chapter 7 - 'The Elves'
