Book Cover, The HobbitThis is the third week I’ve quoted from The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. This book, just made into a movie, is the source of the quotes I tweeted between Dec 20 and December 25. The one today is from my own work.

“May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.” The proper way to say goodbye to an eagle, as Gandalf knows.

“We may meet again before all is over, and then again of course we may not.” Gandalf to the dwarves and Bilbo when he parts from them at the borders of Mirkwood.

“He has more about him than you guess.” Gandalf is speaking to the dwarves about Bilbo.

“There are no safe paths in this part of the world.” A last reminder from Gandalf.

“Dream-dinners aren’t any good, and we can’t share them.” The starving dwarves are complaining when Bilbo tells them of his dream of the elven feast.

“No spider has ever liked being called Attercop.” Bilbo has been taunting the giant spiders, trying to draw them off so he can rescue the dwarves.

“Couldn’t you at least have warned me what to expect?” Sue Ann Bowling, Homecoming. Roi has reacted very badly to controlled dreaming.
