Quote of the Day (Sarah Thyre, Against the Cringe-Worthy Vogue for ‘Journey’)

“Using the word ‘journey’ to describe anything other than a perilous trek through Middle-earth to throw the One Ring of Power into a volcano. (Also: You must be a hobbit.)”— Actress Sarah Thyre, on what will seem embarrassing or regrettable to our future selves, quoted by George Gurley, “Future Cringe,” The New York Times, Jan. 26, 2023

Ms. Thyre’s wish is this blogger’s command: The image accompanying this post shows Frodo (played by Elijah Wood) and his friend Samwise (played by Sean Astin) in The Two Towers, Part II of the book and film trilogy “The Lord of the Rings.”
