I was flitting through Facebook recently and came upon a friend request from someone I don't know, and in determining that I didn't know them I saw a picture of a tattoo they have that said, "Not all that wander are lost."
I personally love this line. Not enough to get it permanently inked on my body but enough to take issue with it being misquoted. It's not a harsh misquote, mind you, but I think if you're going to quote someone it's wrong to paraphrase.
The original, from Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring:
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
So this person simply replaced the words "those who" with "that" which, though it turns the person into an object in my mind, it does still work with modern incorrect grammar vernacular.
I just can't help but slip this person into the same group as the "No ragrets" guy or the "Never don't give up" fella.
I don't think I'll be accepting that friend request. It would be too hard for me not to ask if they "ragret" their misquoted quote.
