The quote "All that is gold does not glitter; not all those that wander are lost." Is actually an incomplete portion of a poem written by J.R.R Tolkien.
It in its entirety it would be,
"All that is gold does not glitter
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes of a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken:
The crownless again shall be king. "

I would appreciate you correcting this error.

Actually all quotations are - by definition - incomplete. If it were complete it would be a poem. And a copyrighted poem at that, which is why I'm not fixing it. :)
