Memorable quotes from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien is a highly enjoyable read, and it also turned out to be an unlikely source of inspiration... Here are some memorable quotes from the famous novel:

"Go back?" he [Bilbo] thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter."

"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."

"There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after."

And, finally:

"When there's life, there's hope."
