“My name is growing all the time, and I’ve lived a very long, long time; so my name is like a story. Real names tell you the story of the things they belong to in my language, in the Old Entish as you might say. It is a lovely language, but it takes a very long time to say anything in it, because we do not say anything in it, unless it is worth taking a long time to say, and to listen to.”

From the wisdom of “Treebeard”, the wise old Ent featured in the “The Lord of the Rings” by J. R. R. Tolkien
