“Not all those who wander are lost.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring


The_Fellowship_Of_The_Ring-001Some of us are finding our way. In need of inspiration? God knows I am. Sharing some quotes from the ever inspiring Lord of the Rings, the Fellowship of the Ring. I love the camaraderie, the loyalty, the sacrifice, and the profound truth.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

And so I am pondering.

Very cute exchange below. One of my favorite ever.

Hobbits-001

Pippin and MerryAragorn: “Gentlemen, we do not stop ’til nightfall.”

Pippin: “What about breakfast?”

Aragorn: “You’ve already had it.”

Pippin: “We’ve had one, yes. What about second breakfast?”

[Aragorn turns and walks off in disgust]

Merry: “I don’t think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.”

Pippin: “What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn’t he?”

Merry: “I wouldn’t count on it.”~

Lord of the Rings1

Legolas: “Lembas!” [nibbles a corner] “One small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man!”

Merry: [to Pippin] “How many did you eat?”

Pippin: “Four.”~

AragornAragorn: “I do not know what strength is in my blood, but I swear to you I will not let the White City fall, nor our people fail.”

Boromir: “Our people, our people. I would have followed you, my brother… my captain… my king.”

Aragorn: “Be at peace, Son of Gondor.”~

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Frodo and Sam-001Frodo: “Go back, Sam. I’m going to Mordor alone.”

Sam: “Of course you are. And I’m coming with you.”~

Pippin: “Are we lost?”

Merry: “No.”

Pippin: “I think we are.”

Merry: “Shh. Gandalf’s thinkin’.”

Pippin: “Merry?”

Merry: “What?”

Pippin: “I’m hungry.”~

Aragorn: “Are you frightened?”

Frodo: “Yes.”

Aragorn: “Not nearly frightened enough. I know what hunts you.”~

“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 judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.” ~Gandalf to Frodo

“I give you the light of Eärendil, our most beloved star. May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.” ~Galadriel to Frodo

“Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Arwen and Aragorn 1

Arwen: Do you remember when we first met?

Aragorn: I thought I had wandered into a dream.

Arwen: Long years have passed. You did not have the cares you carry now. Do you remember what I told you?

Aragorn: You said you’d bind yourself to me, forsaking the immortal life of your people.

Arwen: And to that I hold. I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone. [hands him her pendant]

Arwen: I choose a mortal life.

Aragorn: You cannot give me this.

Arwen: It is mine to give to whom I will. Like my heart.~

“But it does not seem that I can trust anyone,’ said Frodo.

Sam looked at him unhappily. ‘It all depends on what you want,’ put in Merry. ‘You can trust us to stick with you through thick and thin–to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours–closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Yes, I am here. And you are lucky to be here too after all the absurd things you’ve done since you left home.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
