I'm presently writing a book about JRR Tolkien's proverbs – the original sayings and aphorisms of The Lord of the Rings et al – and I have to say, doing my research has led

Though it cost all you have, get

Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
Embrace her, and she will honour you.
She will give you a garland to grace your

And present you with a glorious crown.



[Proverbs 4:7-9, by the way]
