Thorin’s map

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”

“Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?”

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.”

“May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.”

“So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their endings.”

“May the hair on your toes never fall out!”

“Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool!”

“Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks, and the setting sun with the last light of Durin’s Day will shine upon the key-hole.”

“Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of the reality, O Smaug the Chiefest and greatest of Calamities.”

“If the elf-king had a weakness it was for treasure, especially for silver and white gems; and though his hoard was rich, he was ever eager for more, since he had not yet as great a treasure as other elf-lords of old.”

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world” – Thorin Oakenshield
