Frodo Baggins Quotes

Nine of the best book quotes from Frodo Baggins
  1. #1
    ″‘And it is also said,’ answered Frodo: ‘Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.‘”
  2. #2
    “Short cuts make delays, but inns make longer ones.”
  3. #3
    “I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
  4. #4
    “You are wise and powerful. Will you not take the Ring?”
    “No!” cried Gandalf, springing to his feet. “With that power I should have power too great and terrible. And over me the Ring would gain a power still greater and more deadly.” His eyes flashed and his face was lit as by a fire within. “Do not tempt me! For I do not wish to become like the Dark Lord himself. Yet the way of the Ring to my heart is by pity, pity for weakness and the desire of strength to do good. Do not tempt me! I dare not take it, not even to keep it safe, unused. The wish to wield it would be too great for my strength. I shall have such need of it. Great perils lie before me.”
  5. #5
    “It is useless to meet revenge with revenge; it will heal nothing.”
  6. #6
    “What a pity that Bilbo did not stab that vile creature, when he had a chance!”
    “Pity? It was Pity that stayed his hand. Pity, and Mercy: not to strike without need. And he has been well rewarded, Frodo. Be sure that he took so little hurt from the evil, and escaped in the end, because he began his ownership of the Ring so. With Pity.”
  7. #7
    “The Road goes ever on and on
    Down from the door where it began,
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.”
  8. #8
    “May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.”
  9. #9
    “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
