Here are the quotes tweeted from @sueannbowling between July 18 and July 24, 2013. The first six are from The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Map of Eriador“Time doesn’t seem to pass here, it just is.” Bilbo’s description of Rivendell.

“Someone else always has to carry on the story.” Bilbo to Frodo, after he has seen the ring again and realized what he has let his nephew in for.

“There is naught that you can do other than to resist, with hope or without it.” Elrond at the Council, after Gloin tells of his worries that Bilbo is being sought by Sauron.

“The story still does not seem complete to me.” Bilbo, wanting to know more about Frodo’s flight from the Shire.

“I let the matter rest, watching and waiting only, as we have too often done.” Gandalf at the Council, regretting that he did not immediately put more effort into finding Gollum.

“Treason has ever been our greatest foe.” Gandalf, saying that although his fears about the hobbit’s ring had been awakened 17 years ago, he did not want to start a rumor that might reach Sauron’s ear.

“I’ll try, but I really doubt I can help.” Sue Ann Bowling, Tourist Trap. Roi when Marna asks him to look for something out of the ordinary in her memories of Eversummer.
