So do all who live to see such times; but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.

Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet after a hundred years they can still surprise you.

I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay.

Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.

I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to.

A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.

I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.

Do not mention Frodo. Or the Ring. And say nothing of Aragorn either. In fact, it's better if you don't speak at all, Peregrin Took.

Gandalf? That was what they used to call me. Gandalf the Grey. That was my name. I am Gandalf the White. And I come back to you now at the turn of the tide.

Darkness took me and I strayed out of thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead and every day was as long as a life age of The Earth. But it was not the end. I felt life in me again. I've been sent back until my task is done.

Bilbo Baggins! Do not take me for some conjurer of cheap tricks. I am not trying to rob you. I'm trying to help you.

Frodo: "Before you came along, we Bagginses were very well thought of. Never had any adventures or did anything unexpected."
Gandalf: "If you're referring to the incident with the dragon - I was barely involved. All I did was give your uncle a little nudge out of the door."

Life in the wide world goes on much as it has this past age. Full of its own comings and goings. Scarcely even aware of the existence of the Hobbits. For which I am very thankful.

Far too eager and curious for a Hobbit. Most unnatural.

It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not.

The battle for Helm's Deep is over. The battle for Middle-Earth is about to begin. All our hopes now lie with two little Hobbits.

You have become a fool, Saruman, and yet pitiable. You might still have turned away from folly and evil, and have been of service. But you choose to stay and gnaw the ends of your old plots. Stay then! But I warn you, you will not easily come out again. Not unless the dark hands of the east stretch out to take you!
