It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.Courage, Change, AdventuresBilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
One day I'll remember. Remember everything that happened: the good, the bad, those who survived... and those that did not.Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, The Battle of the Five Armies
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.Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
I'm not a hero, or a warrior... not even a burglar.Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey
Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.
A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.
An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
"That eye is like to this eye"
Said the first eye,
"But in low place,
Not in high place."
No-legs lay on one-leg,
two-legs sat near on three-legs,
four-legs got some.

I am old, Gandalf. I don't look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can't be right. I need a change, or something.Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their endings.Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit
[Riddle for Gollum]
What have I got in my pocket?
This is a bitter adventure, if it must end so; and not a mountain of gold can amend it.Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, The Battle of the Five Armies
