Posted by Cn on July 19, 2004

I have been wondering the meaning of the quote below and would very much like to know what it means. Could anyone help? THANK YOU in advance. If possible, in detail please.
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."
-- J.R.R. Tolkien
