"If you want to become whole,
let yourself be partial.
If you want to become straight,
let yourself be crooked.
If you want to become full,
let yourself be empty.
If you want to be reborn,
let yourself die.
If you want to be given everything,
give everything up."

"One Ring to rule them all, 
One ring to find them; 
One ring to bring them all 
and in the darkness bind them."
