The finest rockets ever seen:
they burst in stars of blue and green,
or after thunder golden showers
come falling like a rain of flowers.

“So you heard that Mr. Frodo is going away?” “I did, sir. And that’s why I choked: which you heard seemingly. I tried not to, sir, but it burst out of me: I was so upset.”

"Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule."

"Among the Wise I am the only one that goes in for hobbitlore: an obscure branch of knowledge, but full of surprises. Soft as butter they can be, and yet sometimes as tough as old tree-roots."

"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.

"A mortal, Frodo, who keeps one of the Great Rings, does not die, but he does not grow; or obtain more life, he merely continues, until at last every minute is a weariness. And if he often uses the Ring to make himself invisible, he fades: he becomes in the end invisible permanently, and walks in the Twilight under the eye of the dark power that rules the Rings. Yes, sooner or later – later, if he is strong or well – meaning to begin with, but neither strength nor good purpose will last – sooner or later the dark power will devour him."
