The Hobbit meme: {2/6} quotes

Bilbo

"In a hole in a ground, there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty wet hole full of worms and oozy smells. this was a Hobbit hole and that means good food, a warm hearth, and all the comforts of home."

“Hobbits have been living and farming in the four Farthings of the Shire for many hundreds of years. Quite content to ignore and be ignored by the world of the Big Folk — Middle-Earth being, after all, full of strange creatures beyond count. Hobbits must seem of little importance, being neither renowned as great warriors, nor counted among the very wise. In fact, it has been remarked by some that the Hobbits’ only real passion is for food. A rather unfair observation, as we have also developed a keen interest in the brewing of ales, and the smoking of pipe-weed. But where our hearts truly lie is in peace and quiet, and good tilled earth. For all Hobbits share a love of things that grow. And yes, no doubt, to others our ways seem quaint. But today, of all days, it is brought home to me, it is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.”

– Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
