Good Friday and a merrier world

“This is a bitter adventure, if it must end so and not a mountain of gold can amend it. Yet I am glad that I have shared in your perils—that has been more than any Baggins deserves.”

“No!” said Thorin. “There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But sad or merry, I must leave it now. Farewell!”

(from The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien)

—–

Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?

  1. You need to post a SPOILER ALERT for this one. I don’t remember that happening in The Hobbit films as of yet. 😉
