"I am personally immensely amused by hobbits as such, and can contemplate them eating and making their rather fatuous remarks indefinitely" - J.R.R.Tolkien
"We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!"- Bilbo Baggins
"You're a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I'm quite fond of you. But you are really just a little fellow, in a wide world after all" - Gandalf
