fellowship of the ring quotes

HUFFLEPUFF:

“GLORFINDEL: His pace is light and smooth; and if danger presses too near, he will bear you away with a speed that even the black steeds of the enemy cannot rival.
FRODO: No, he will not! I shall not ride him, if I am to be carried off to Rivendell or anywhere else, leaving my friends behind in danger.”

–J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring)

  • Hermione: Did you find out anything from Dumbledore?
  • Harry: Not much—only hints and riddles.
  • Hermione: Did you ask about your scar hurting?
  • Harry: We didn’t discuss it.
  • Hermione: You should have. I am sure it is very important.
  • Harry: In that case I am sure Dumbledore would have refused to explain it.

RAVENCLAW:

“FRODO: He deserves death.
GANDALF: Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”

–J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring)

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Well, I can add ‘this fucking mountain’ to the list of things that have tried to kill me that by all reasonable thinking should not have tried to kill me. I think this is the weirdest, unseating Creepy Sentient Murder Tree and pushing the Ghost of Monarchies Past into the number three spot, but I might be wrong.

- Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck, The Lord of the Rings, book II, chapter IV

SLYTHERIN: “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!” -JRR Tolkien (Galadriel: Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring)

He found himself wondering at times, especially in the autumn, about the wild lands, and strange visions of mountains that he had never seen came into his dreams. He began to say to himself: ‘Perhaps I shall cross the River myself one day.’ To which the other half of his mind always replied: 'Not yet.’

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.
