“Escaping goblins to be caught by wolves!” he said, and it became a proverb, though we now say “out of the frying pan and into the fire” in the same sort of uncomfortable situations.
Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day,
To seek the pale enchanted gold.
via The Hobbit
“May the wind under your wings bear you to where the sun sails and the moon walks.”
Gandalf via The Hobbit
“I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air. I am he that walks unseen. I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly. I was chosen for the lucky number. I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of bag, but no bag went over me. I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ring-winner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider.”
Bilbo Baggins via The Hobbit
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
Thorin Oakenshield via The Hobbit
