Quotes from The Hobbit

The following quotations may inspire artists in their quest to create a work of art to submit to the 4thAnnual C.S. Lewis Festival 2010 Juried Fine Arts Exhibition.



“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.”




He may have lost the neighbours’ respect, but he gained—well, you will see whether he gained anything in the end.



Even the good plans of wise wizards like Gandalf and of good friends like Elrond go astray sometimes when you are off on dangerous adventures over the Edge of the Wild; and Gandalf was a wise enough wizard to know it.



“Go back?” he thought. “No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!”

—Bilbo Baggins



Suddenly his hand met what felt like a tiny ring of cold metal lying on the floor of the tunnel. It was a turning point in his career, but he did not know it.



“Good-bye! Be good, take care of yourselves—and DON’T LEAVE THE PATH!”




Somehow the killing of the giant spider, all alone by himself in the dark without the help of the wizard or the dwarves or of anyone else, made a great difference to Mr. Baggins.



“This is a bitter adventure, if it must end so; and not a mountain of gold can amend it.”

—Bilbo Baggins



He was now weary of his adventure. He was aching in his bones for the homeward journey.


Quotes are from The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
