Personal Quotes (1)

A nice part for me was that Dwalin would name his axes. It's not Tolkien, but I always remembered Emily Bronte had two hounds that she called Grasper and Keeper. She was a tiny little woman, but she had these enormous dogs and they struck me as great names. It was just for me to imagine, but I mentioned it to Peter and he said, 'Yeah, yeah, this'll be great. We can engrave them with their names and they'll look really cool!' and now there they are, Emily's axes!
