"Bombur was now so fat that he could not move himself from his couch to his chair at table, and it took six young dwarves to lift him.”

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

"Not all those who wander are lost"
-Bilbo

"I will come and see them, if ever I can," said Frodo. "How surprised Bilbo would have been to see all the changes In the Desolation of Smaug!"

"Hurray" cried Pippin, springing up. "Here is our noble cousin! Make way for Frodo, Lord of the Ring!"
"Hush," said Gandalf from the shadows at the back of the porch. "Evil things do not come into this valley; but all the same we should not name them. The Lord of the Ring is not Frodo, but the master of the Dark Tower of Mordor, whose power is again stretching out over the world! We are sitting in a fortress. Outside it is getting dark."
"Gandalf has been saying many cheerful things like that," said Pippin.

Bilbo: I don't know half of you as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,

A light from the shadows shall spring;

Renewed shall be blade that was broken;

The crownless again shall be king.

Here in the first book of the Lord of the Rings we meet the fellowship of men, hobbits, an elf, a dwarf, and a wizard. Their mission is to take the one ring to be destroyed at Mt.Doom. In this first part we see how hobbits live, the chase of the ringwraiths, and meet a demonic creature deep in the mines of Moria.

"Frodo the hobbit and his companions set out to deliver the one ring of power to the dark land of Mordor in order to destroy the ring on the forge of its creation." (Novelist Review)
