Hobbit Sayings: appetizer

Richard Blackwelder collected some of his favorite wise sayings in “Tolkien Phraseology”, a booklet companion to his thesaurus.  In honor of his method, I will share a few tidbits I found as I meandered this path.

[05.008] Hobbits are not quite like ordinary people; … they have a fund of wisdom and wise sayings that men have mostly never heard or have forgotten long ago.
