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.

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.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring.
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king.

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.

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.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Such is of the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.

We're all afraid, Frodo. But to let that fear drive us, to destroy what hope we have. Don't you see that is madness?

Your love of the the Halfling's leaf has clearly slowed your mind.

A friendship with Saruman is not lightly thrown aside. One ill turn deserves another. It is over. Embrace the power of the Ring or embrace your own destruction.

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.

I was expecting you sometime last week. Not that it matters. You come and go as you please. Always have and always will. You've caught me a bit unprepared I'm afraid. Uh, we've only got cold chicken, a bit of pickle... there's some cheese here... oh, no. Er, we've got raspberry jam, an apple tart... oh, no, we're alright! I've just found some sponge cake.

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.

Comment 

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. And the Great Eye is ever-watchful. It is a barren wasteland riddled with fire and ash and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten-thousand men could you do this. It is folly.

Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
 
Comment 

It is a gift. A gift to the foes of Mordor. Why not use this ring? Give Gondor the weapon of the enemy. Let us use it against him.

The year is 3434 of the Second Age. Here follows the account of Isildur, High King of Gondor, and the finding of the ring of power. It has come to me. The One Ring. It shall be an heirloom of my kingdom. All those who follow in my bloodline shall be bound to its fate, for I will risk no hurt to the ring. It is precious to me though I buy it with great pain. The markings upon the band begin to fade. The writing, which at first was as clear as red flame has all but disappeared. A secret now that only fire can tell.

The Quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little, and it will fail, to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains while the Company is true.

The mirror shows many things. Things that were, things that are, and some things that have not yet come to pass.
