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.

Gondor has no king. Gondor needs no king.

Comment 

But do not despise the lore that has come down from distant years; for oft it may chance that old wives keep in memory word of things that once were needful for the wise to know.

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

We long have feared that under Caradhras a terror slept. But had I known that the Dwarves had stirred up this evil in Moria again, I would have forbidden you to pass the northern borders, you and all that went with you. And if it were possible, one would say that at the last Gandalf fell from wisdom into folly, going needlessly into the net of Moria.

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.

Comment 

You offer it to me freely. I do not deny that my heart has greatly desired this. In place of a Dark Lord, you would have a queen! Not dark but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Treacherous as the sea! Stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me and despair.

Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, to Frodo
 
Comment 

And now at last it comes. You will give me the Ring freely! In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!

You are a Ring-bearer, Frodo. To bear a Ring of Power is to be alone.

Comment 

I give you the light of Eärendil, our most beloved star. May it be a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out.

Comment 

The Ring cannot be destroyed by any craft that we here possess. The Ring was made in the fires of Mount Doom. Only there can it be unmade. It must be taken deep into Mordor and cast back into the fiery chasm from whence it came.

Elrond in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Sam: "Hey. Mr. Frodo's not going anywhere without me!"
Elrond: "No, indeed. It is hardly possible to separate you, even when he is summoned to a secret council and you are not."

Middle-Earth stands upon the brink of destruction. None can escape it. You will unite or you will fall.

And yet, to have come so far, still bearing the Ring, the Hobbit has shown extraordinary resilience to its evil.

I’m wasted on cross-country. We dwarves are natural sprinters. Very dangerous over short distances.

Comment 

Elrond raised his eyes and looked at him, and Frodo felt his heart pierced by the sudden keenness of the glance. "If I understand aright all that I have heard," he said, "I think that this task is appointed for you, Frodo; and that if you do not find a way, no one will."

If anyone was to ask for my opinion, which I note they’re not, I’d say we were taking the long way around.

Comment 

Isildur kept the Ring. It should have ended that day, but evil was allowed to endure. There’s no strength left in the world of Men. They’re scattered, divided, leaderless.

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

Men are weak. The race of men is failing. The blood of Númenor is all but spent, its pride and dignity forgotten. It is because of men the Ring survives.

"And what do you wish?", he said at last.
"That what should be shall be", she answered.

The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who, above all else, desire power. But they were, all of them, deceived, for another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret a Master Ring, to control all others. And into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One Ring to rule them all!

Comment 

One by one, the free peoples of Middle Earth fell to the power of the Ring. But there were some who resisted. A last alliance of men and elves marched against the armies of Mordor, and on the very slopes of Mount Doom, they fought for the freedom of Middle-Earth. Victory was near, but the power of the ring could not be undone. It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Isildur, son of the king, took up his father's sword. And Sauron, enemy of the free peoples of Middle-Earth, was defeated. The Ring passed to Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy evil forever, but the hearts of men are easily corrupted. And the ring of power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur, to his death. And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge. Until, when chance came, the ring ensnared a new bearer. The ring came to the creature Gollum, who took it deep into the tunnels under the Misty Mountains, and there it consumed him. The ring gave to Gollum unnatural long life. For five hundred years it poisoned his mind; and in the gloom of Gollum's cave, it waited. Darkness crept back into the forests of the world. Rumor grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear, and the Ring of Power perceived. Its time had now come. It abandoned Gollum. But then something happened that the Ring did not intend. It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable. A Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, of the Shire. For the time will soon come when Hobbits will shape the fortunes of all...

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

I want to see mountains again. Mountains, Gandalf! And then find somewhere quiet where I can finish my book.

You cannot wield it. None of us can. The One Ring answers to Sauron alone. It has no other master.

Soon, Master Elf, you will enjoy the fabled hospitality of the Dwarves. Roaring fires, malt beer, ripe meat off the bone.

You need people of intelligence on this sort of... mission. Quest. Thing.

Why do you fear the past? You are Isildur's heir not Isildur himself. You are not bound to his fate.

Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow,
Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow.
None has ever caught him yet, for Tom, he is the Master:
His songs are stronger songs, and his feet are faster.
