A quote, a quote, my kingdom for a quote!

Yes, I do know that is wrong. Shush!

“And the ship went out into the High Sea and passed on into the West, until at last on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain rolled back and turned all to silver glass, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country under a swift sunrise.”
~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

One of the most beautiful quotes ever. I wish I could write like that.

Well, the good thing is that you are able to recognize really good writing--that is step one in being able to ultimately replicate it.
