"It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass." - LoTR
There was a dark time in my life when I didn't even know what a hobbit was. And I had never heard of a Bilbo. Thank goodness that shadow has passed.
