"There Iluvatar permitted the Valar to maintain upon the Earth an abiding place, a memorial of that which might have been if Morgoth had not cast his shadow upon the world." -Akallabeth, The Silmarillion
"When you can do what you want, you will be who you are." -John Hagee (first person I heard use it anyway)
