The Tolkiens

“A principal source of happiness to them was their shared love for their family…Tolkien was immensely kind and understanding as a father, never shy of kissing his sons in public even when they were grown men, and never reserved in his display of warmth and love.”

J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography, by Humphrey Carpenter, 161.
