“Not all who wander to the kitchen at midnight are lost”

"Not all who wander to the kitchen at midnight are lost” is a jocular eating saying that has been printed on many images. “Not all those who wander are lost” is a famous line from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring (1954).

“Not all who wander to the kitchen at midnight are lost” was posted on Twitter by Meghan on April 9, 2016. The saying probably originated with an image.

“Not all who wander are lost. They’re just looking for coffee” is a related saying.


Wikiquote: The Fellowship of the Ring
The Fellowship of the Ring (1954); first of three volumes in The Lord of the Rings books by J. R. R. Tolkien. It contains Book I: The Ring Sets Out and Book II: The Ring Goes South.

Strider

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
