Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the walls of stone
Look at last on meadows green

You have found a way in. You seek that which would bestow upon you, the right to rule. The King's Jewel. The Arkenstone. It is precious to you beyond measure, I understand that. The gems in the Mountain that I, too, desire - white gems, of pure starlight. I offer you my help. I will let you go, if you but return what is mine.
Thranduil in The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug
Such is the nature of evil. Out there in the vast ignorance of the world it festers and spreads. A shadow that grows in the dark. A sleepless malice as black as the oncoming wall of night. So it ever was. So will it always be. In time all foul things come forth.
Thranduil in The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug

Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.

It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;

And beats high mountain down.

Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?

As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.

Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.

The Jedi are trained to let go. They're trained from birth. They're not supposed to form attachments. They can love people – in fact, they should love everybody. They should love their enemies; they should love the Sith. But they can't form attachments. So what all these movies are about is: greed. Greed is a source of pain and suffering for everybody.
To make a bad day worse, spend it wishing for the impossible.
