two quotes

"The tragic is inevitable. The comic is unforeseeable."
--Frederick Buechner

"The fairy tale does not deny the existence of...sorrow and failure: the possibility of these is necessary to the joy of the deliverance; it denies (in the face of much evidence, if you will) universal final defeat..., giving a fleeting glimpse of Joy, Joy beyond the walls of the world, poignant as grief."
--J.R.R. Tolkien
