203 notes "Then, Eowyn of Rohan, I say to you that you are beautiful. In the valleys of our hills there are flowers fair and bright, and maidens fairer still; but neither flower nor lady have I seen till now in Gondor so lovely, and so sorrowful. It may be that only a few days are left ere darkness falls upon our world, and when it comes I hope to face it steadily; but it would ease my heart, if while the Sun yet shines, I could see you still."

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

308 notes smithsonianlibraries:

Off the coast of Massachusetts, near Cohasset and Scituate, south of the Boston Harbor, the Minots Ledge Light warns sailors of danger in a 1-4-3 cycle over 45 seconds (which we have sped up), charmingly referred to as “I LOVE YOU” by local residents. First lit in 1860, the current lighthouse was constructed at a cost exceeding any other lighthouse to date, and replaced the lighthouse that previously sat in its position. The older lighthouse, an open-work iron structure created in 1847, proved unfit for its location and was washed away in a storm in 1851, claiming the lives of two assistants. Work began on a replacement in 1855 and continued for five years. The granite structure designed by General Joseph G. Totten was constructed only during calm low tides when the ledge was exposed. It remains a working lighthouse and romantic inspiration.
From History of the Old Colony Railroad (1893).

When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits - anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.
