Bilbo Baggins: I have… I have never used a sword in my life. Gandalf: And I hope you never have to. But if you do, remember this: true courage is about knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one.
via The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012 – Memorable quotes.
“I’m going on an adventure”
“That could have been worse”
“OHHHHHHH you’ve got to be joking
“Bagins? What is a Bagins, precious?”
whoops! I spelled Baggins wrong.
“Blunt the knives bend the forks
smash the bottles and burn the corks
chip the glasses crack the plates
that’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
Cut the cloth trail the fat leave the bones on the bedroom mat
spill the milk on the pantry floor splash the wine on every door
dump the crocks in a boiling bowl and pound them up with a thumping pole
and when your finished if any are whole send them down the hall to roll
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!”
Advice that Bilbo obviously followed, later to Frodo’s and all of Middle Earth’s benefit…
