The best Lord of the Rings quotes from author J.R.R. Tolkien give us hope Samwise Gamgee is the solid rock to Frodo Baggins' airy courage.

In The Fellowship of the Ring, Lady Galadriel gives Frodo a phial of starlight, “a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out”. While we can’t get our hands on anything like that, words can provide their own kind of light. If our Earth feels dark to you right now, let these words of wisdom and hope from Tolkien’s Middle-Earth brighten your day a little.


“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”

-Haldir, The Fellowship of the Ring


“It’s the job that’s never started as takes longest to finish.”

-Sam Gamgee, The Fellowship of the Ring


“Deeds will not be less valiant because they are unpraised.”

-Aragorn, The Return of the King


“The brave things in the old tales and songs, Mr. Frodo, adventures, as I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull, a kind of a sport, as you might say. But that’s not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have been just landed in them, usually their paths were laid that way, as you put it. But I expect they had lots of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn’t. And if they had, we shouldn’t know, because they’d have been forgotten. We hear about those as just went on, and not all to a good end, mind you; at least not to what folk inside a story and not outside it call a good end. You know, coming home, and finding things all right, though not quite the same; like old Mr Bilbo. But those aren’t always the best tales to hear, though they may be the best tales to get landed in! I wonder what sort of a tale we’ve fallen into?”

-Sam Gamgee, The Two Towers


“Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.”

-Elrond, The Fellowship of the Ring


“Don’t adventures ever have an end? I suppose not. Someone else always has to carry on the story.

-Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring


“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.

-Frodo Baggins and Gandalf, The Fellowship of the Ring


“Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.”

-Gandalf, The Return of the King


“Often does hatred hurt itself!”

-Gandalf, The Two Towers


“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”

-Faramir, The Two Towers


“For behold! the storm comes, and now all friends should gather together, lest each singly be destroyed.”

Gandalf, The Two Towers


“Though here at journey’s end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.

-Sam Gamgee, The Return of the King

The main character is really Samwise Gamgee, though you may not know it. I'm telling Gandalf is greatest manipulator of events. But it's not.

What J.R.R. Tolkien Can Teach Us About Travel and Life

best samwise quote

1- Queen Galadriel: In place of the Dark Lord you will have a Queen! Not dark but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Treacherous as the sea! Stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me and despair!

2- Gandalf: A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.

 

3- Gandalf: When in doubt, follow your nose.

 

10- ArwenAnd to that I hold. I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

 

12- Frodo: I will take the Ring, though I do not know the way.

 

13- Gandalf: The board is set, the pieces are moving. We come to it at last, the great battle of our time.”

 

14- Gimli: Memory is not what the heart desires. That is only a mirror.

 

16- Elrond:We must take a hard road, a road unforeseen. There lies our hope, if hope it be. To walk into peril – to Mordor. We must send the Ring to the Fire.

 

17- Lady Galadriel : Maybe the paths that you each shall tread are already laid before your feet, though you do not see them.

 

18- Arwen : Your time will come. You will face the same Evil, and you will defeat it.”

 

19- PippinSam is an excellent fellow, and would jump down a dragon’s throat to save you, if he did not trip over his own feet.

 

 

22- Gandalf:  Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it . . . White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.”

24- Gandalf: For behold! the storm comes, and now all friends should gather together, lest each singly be destroyed

25- Sam Gamgee : But in the end it’s only a passing thing, this shadow; even darkness must pass.

26- Gandalf:   Often does hatred hurt itself!”

27- Aragorn: A hunted man sometimes wearies of distrust and longs for friendship.

28- Gimli : Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens

29- Gollum: We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!

30- Gandalf: For the time will soon come when Hobbits will shape the fortunes of all

31- Gandalf: There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power.

32- Frodo Baggins : It is useless to meet revenge with revenge: it will heal nothing.

33- Gandalf: He that breaks a thing to find out what it is, has left the path of wisdom.

34- Treebeard : My name is growing all the time, and I’ve lived a very long, long time; so my name is like a story. Real names tell you the story of the things they belong to in my language, in the Old Entish as you might say. It is a lovely language, but it takes a very long time to say anything in it, because we do not say anything in it, unless it is worth taking a long time to say, and to listen to

35- Pippin: The mightiest man may be slain by one arrow.

36- Aragorn: They were once men. Great kings of men. Then Sauron the deceiver gave to them nine rings of power. Blinded by their greed, they took them without question, one by one falling into darkness. Now they are slaves to his will. They are the Nazgul, Ringwraiths, neither living nor dead. At all times they feel the presence of the Ring, drawn to the power of the One. They will never stop hunting you

37-  Gandalf: All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.

 

38- Frodo:  Shortcuts make delays, but inns make longer ones

 

39- Faramir: The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

 

40- Witch King: Do not come between the Nazgul and his prey

 

41- Eomer: Do not trust to hope. It has forsaken these lands.

 

42- Frodo:  I will do now what I must. This at least is plain: the evil of the Ring is already at work even in the Company, and the Ring must leave them before it does more harm. I will go alone. Some I cannot trust, and those who I can trust are too dear to me: poor old Sam, and Merry and Pippin. Strider, too: his heart yearns for Minas Tirith, and he will be needed there, now Boromir has fallen into evil. I will go alone. At once

 

43- Gimli : Sworn word may strengthen quaking heart.

 

44- Frodo:  I’m glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee…here at the end of all things.

 

45- Treebeard :There is no curse in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of Men for this treachery

 

46- Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for

 

47- Elrond: It is perilous to study too deeply the arts of the Enemy, for good or for ill

 

48- Elrond: Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.

 

49- Gandalf:  You cannot pass! I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the Flame of Anor. The dark fire will not avail you, Flame of Udun! Go back to the shadow. You shall not pass!

50- Boromir: It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing. Such a little thing.

51- Bilbo Baggins:Gandalf, my old friend, this will be a night to remember.

 

52- Gildor: Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.

 

53- Gandalf:  Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.

 

54- Galadriel :You may learn something, and whether what you see be fair or evil, that may be profitable, and yet it may not. Seeing is both good and perilous.

 

55- Gandalf: I am Gandalf the White. And I come back to you now… at the turn of the tide

 

56- Elrond: For you do not yet know the strengths of your hearts, and you cannot foresee what each may meet on the road

 

57- Bilbo : Where there’s life there’s hope.

 

58- Gandalf: You shall not pass!

 

59- Gollum: We swears, to serve the master of the Precious. We will swear on… on the Precious!

 

60- Haldir : The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater

61- Samwise ‘Sam’ Gamgee: I made a promise, Mr Frodo. A promise. “Don’t you leave him Samwise Gamgee.” And I don’t mean to. I don’t mean to.

62- Queen Galadriel: The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost. For none now live, who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else, desire power. For within these Rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them, deceived. For another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the dark lord Sauron forged in scret a master ring to control all others. And into this ring, he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One Ring to rule them all…

63- Gandalf: Here at last, on the shores of the sea … comes the end of our Fellowship. I will not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.

Please follow and like us:

4- Gimli:Nobody tosses a Dwarf!

5- Sam Gamgee :There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.

6- Gimli:I will be dead before I see the ring in the hands of an elf! Never trust an elf!

7- Sam Gamgee :It’s the job that’s never started as takes longest to finish.

8- Gimli: “Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”

9- Queen Galadriel:Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.

 

11- Boromir: It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing… such a little thing.

15- Gandalf:  Who knows? Have patience. Go where you must go, and hope!

20- Gandalf:  The burned hand teaches best. After that advice about fire goes to the heart.

 

21- Gandalf: Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
