Book Cover, The HobbitThese are the quotes that were tweeted from @sueannbowling over the past week, with the contexts given. The first six quotes are from The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“Seek the sunlight and the day.” Part of the Elven song as they tip the barrels into the river.

“His speeches at banquets were limited to, ‘Thag you very buch.’” Bilbo arrives at Lake-Town with a very bad cold.

“There is no knowing what a dwarf may do or dare for revenge.” The dwarves are leaving Lake-Town, and the Master still doesn’t believe they are who they say they are.

“It was easier to believe in the dragon and less easy to believe in Thorin in these wild parts.”  The men from Lake-town don’t want to spend any more time than they can help so close to the Mountain.

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations.” Bilbo has managed to steal a cup from Smaug’s horde, but the dragon has discovered the loss.

“He had begun to have ideas and plans of his own.” The journey has had quite an effect on Bilbo.

“What are we supposed to hold on to?” Timi is trying to figure out how to hold on to a flat-headed peccary with its head stuck in a bucket. Tourist Trap, by Sue Ann Bowling.
