My husband and I went to see The Hobbit this week. We really like the books and the movies in the series of the rings. It was inspiring and adventurous and funny and terrifying at the same time. I highly recommend it (although not a movie for young children).
I love these quotes from +The Hobbit:
Gandalf: "I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone."
Bilbo Baggins: "I should think so - in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!"
Another wonderful quote in this theme of ordinary heroes:
Galadriel: Mithrandir, why the Halfling?
Mithrandir [aka Gandalf]: Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it is because I am afraid and he gives me courage.
