A sense of exile

Paradise

We all long for Eden
and we are constantly glimpsing it:
our whole nature is still soaked
with the sense of exile.

–J.R.R. Tolkien
(1892 – 1973)

Catching glimpses

We all long for Eden,
and we are constantly glimpsing it:
our whole nature . . . is still
soaked with the sense of exile. 

–J.R.R. Tolkien
