Alive without breath,
As cold as death,
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail, never clinking. - Gollum/Smeagol

"Blunt the knives, bend the forks,
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Chip the glasses and crack the plates,
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!"
(Movie Quote, but I love the book and the movie all the same)

Voiceless it cries,
Wingless it flutters,
Toothless it bites,
Mouth less it mutters.

Chip the glasses and crack the plates! /
Blunt the knives and bend the forks! /
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates-- /
Smash the bottles and burn the corks! //
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat! /
Pour the milk on the pantry floor! /
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat! /
Splash the wine on every door! //

Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl; /
Pound them up with a thumping pole; /
And when you've finished, if any are whole, /
Send them down the hall to roll!

That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully with the plates!

"You don't really suppose, do you, that all your adventures and escapes were managed by mere luck, just for your sole benefit? You are a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I am very fond of you; but you are only quite a little fellow in a wide world after all!"-Gandalf

"What do you mean?" he said. "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?" - Gandalf

Thorin:
Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
to claim our long-forgotten gold.
