Day 20 (revised) - 20 days to the publication of "The Proverbs of Middle-earth"

“Proverbs are vessels of transmission, the ships in which wisdom sails. They come into being because of the tremendous value of hard-won wisdom, and the consequent need to pass it on. In the words of Sophocles, wisdom ‘outweighs any wealth’, and in order to share that wealth – to avoid the need for every individual in every generation to relearn the same lessons from scratch – a method or means to preserve and communicate is required.”
