Thesis pearls

“Pearls” are attained at great price.

Frodo once answered Gildor:

“It is said, ‘Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.’”

Yet with hopes that perhaps they may assist you in your quest, without lengthening your stay in Mordor unnecessarily, here are my “thesis pearls,” with best wishes for a safe journey:
