„For myth is alive at once and in all its parts, and dies before it can be dissected.“

—  John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, kniha The Monsters and the Critics
Context: The significance of a myth is not easily to be pinned on paper by analytical reasoning. It is at its best when it is presented by a poet who feels rather than makes explicit what his theme portends; who presents it incarnate in the world of history and geography, as our poet has done. Its defender is thus at a disadvantage: unless he is careful, and speaks in parables, he will kill what he is studying by vivisection, and he will be left with a formal or mechanical allegory, and what is more, probably with one that will not work. For myth is alive at once and in all its parts, and dies before it can be dissected. "Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics" (1936), p. 14

„I always in writing start with a name. Give me a name and it produces a story, not the other way about normally.“

—  John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
Context: It gives me great pleasure, a good name. I always in writing start with a name. Give me a name and it produces a story, not the other way about normally. Interview http://www.lordotrings.com/interview.asp with Dennis Gerrolt, first broadcast on the BBC Radio 4 programme "Now Read On" (January 1971)

„The moment disbelief arises, the spell is broken; the magic, or rather art, has failed.“

—  John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, kniha On Fairy-Stories
On Fairy-Stories (1939), Context: The story-maker proves a successful 'sub-creator'. He makes a Secondary World which your mind can enter. Inside it, what he relates is 'true': it accords with the laws of that world. You therefore believe it, while you are, as it were, inside. The moment disbelief arises, the spell is broken; the magic, or rather art, has failed.

„But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to.“

—  John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
Context: Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to. Letter to Michael Tolkien (March 1941)
