Gandalf the Grey quotes

(singing) 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...

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

Bilbo Baggins! Do not take me for some conjurer of cheap tricks! I am not trying to rob you! I'm trying to help you. All your long years we've been friends. Trust me as you once did. Let it go.

(musing on the Ring) Riddles in the Dark. My precious.

Bilbo's Ring. He's gone to stay with the Elves. He's left you Bag End. Along with all his possessions. [Seals the ring in an envelope] The ring is yours now. Keep it secret. Keep it safe.

(of the inscription on the Ring)In the Common tongue it says, "One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them."

The Ring has awoken. It's heard its master's call.

The spirit of Sauron endured. His life force is bound to the Ring, and the Ring survived. Sauron has returned. His Orcs have multiplied. His fortress of Barad-dûr is rebuilt in the land of Mordor. Sauron needs only this Ring to cover all the lands in a second darkness. He is seeking it… seeking it and all his thought is bent on it. For the Ring yearns above all else, to return to the hand of its master. They are one; the Ring and the Dark Lord. Frodo... he must never find it.

Understand, Frodo, I would use this Ring from a desire to do good… but through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.

My dear Frodo. Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all that there is to know about them in a month, and yet after a hundred years, they can still surprise you.

Always remember, Frodo, the Ring is trying to get back to its master. It wants to be found.

Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul! (One Ring to rule them all, one Ring to find them, one Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them!)

There are older, and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

(reading the last words of Balin) They have taken the Bridge, and the Second Hall. We have barred the gates, but cannot hold them for long. The ground shakes. Drums, drums in the deep. We cannot get out. Shadow moves in the dark. We cannot get out. They are coming.

[Pippin knocks a skeleton down a well, creating a huge clatter] Fool of a Took! Throw yourself in next time and rid us of your stupidity!

Lead them on, Aragorn. The Bridge is near. Do as I say! Swords are no more use here.

I am a servant of the secret fire, wielder of the Flame of Anor! The Dark fire will not avail you, Flame of Udûn! Go back to the Shadow! YOU... SHALL NOT... PASS!!!

There is only one lord of the rings. And he does not share power!

[Last words] Fly, you fools!
