Quotes / The Magnificent

"I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air. I am he that walks unseen. [...] I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly. I was chosen for the lucky number. [...] I am he that buries his friends alive and drown them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me. [...] I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider," went on Bilbo beginning to be pleased with his riddling.
