Tolkien quote of the day:

Thus it came to pass in that time that the Númenóreans first made great settlements upon the west shores of the ancient lands; for their own land seemed to them shrunken, and they had no rest or content therein, and they desired now wealth and dominion in Middle-earth, since the West was denied. Great harbours and strong towers they made, and there many of them took up their abode; but they appeared now rather as lords and masters and gatherers of tribute than as helpers and teachers. And the great ships of the Númenóreans were borne east on the winds and returned ever laden, and the power and majesty of their kings were increased; and they drank and they feasted and they clad themselves in silver and gold.

Akallabeth, The Silmarillion

It has been passed down by Elanor Fairbairn that, in the year 1482, by Shire reckoning, Samwise Gamgee passed the Tower Hills and went to the Grey Havens and passed over the sea, last of the Ring-bearers.
