There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.
Not all those who wander are lost.
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.
Never laugh at live dragons.
It is not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit.
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
Little by little, one travels far.
