The counsel of Gandalf was not founded on foreknowledge of safety, for himself or for others, said Aragorn. There are some things that it is better to begin than to refuse, even though the end may be dark.
-Aragorn Gandalf
"I am old, Gandalf. I dont look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! he snorted. Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That cant be right. I need a change, or something."
-Bilbo
Then he took out his morning letters, and began to read, pretending to take no more notice of [Gandalf]. He had decided that he was not quite his sort, and wanted him to go away. But the old man did not move.
-Bilbo Gandalf
I wish it need not have happened in my time, said Frodo. So do I, said Gandalf, and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
-Frodo Gandalf
Courage will now be your best defence against the storm that is at hand, that and such hope as I bring.
-Gandalf
There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power.
-Gandalf
A Wizard Is Never Late, Nor Is He Early. He Arrives Precisely When He Means To
-Gandalf
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
-Gandalf
Deeds will not be less valiant because they are unpraised.
-Gandalf
Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
-Gandalf
Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?
-Gandalf
End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.
-Gandalf
Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.
-Gandalf
Fly you fools!
-Gandalf
Go back! Fall into the nothingness that awaits you and your Master. Go!
-Gandalf
Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.
-Gandalf
He is in great fear, not knowing what mighty one may suddenly appear, wielding the Ring, and assailing him with war, seeking to cast him down and take his place. That we should wish to cast him down and have no one in his place is not a thought that occurs to his mind. That we should try to destroy the Ring itself has not yet entered into his darkest dream.
-Gandalf
He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.
-Gandalf
I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass.The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udun. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.
-Gandalf
I am with you at present, said Gandalf, but soon I shall not be. I am not coming to the Shire. You must settle its affairs yourselves; that is what you have been trained for. Do you not yet understand? My time is over: it is no longer my task to set things to rights, nor to help folk to do so. And as for you, my dear friends, you will need no help. You are grown up now. Grown indeed very high; among the great you are, and I have no longer any fear at all for any of you.
-Gandalf
I must rest here a moment, even if all the orcs ever spawned are after us.
-Gandalf
I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to.
-Gandalf
It is a comfort not to be mistaken at all points. Do I not know it only too well!
-Gandalf
It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope.
-Gandalf
It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world. We should seek a final end of this menace, even if we do not hope to make one.
-Gandalf
It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till," he said. "What weather they shall have [is not ours to rule].
-Gandalf
It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till.
-Gandalf
It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope. Well, let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy! For he is very wise, and weighs all things to a nicety in the scales of this malice. But the only measure that he knows is desire, desire for power; and so he judges all hearts. Into his heart the thought will not enter that any will refuse it.
-Gandalf
It may be your task to find the Cracks of Doom; but that quest may be for others: I do not know. At any rate you are not ready for that long road yet.
-Gandalf
Let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy! For he is very wise, and weighs all things to a nicety in the scales of his malice. But the only measure that he knows is desire, desire for power; and so he judges all hearts. Into his heart the thought will not enter that any will refuse it, that having the Ring we may seek to destroy it. If we seek this, we shall put him out of reckoning.
-Gandalf
Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend. It can be so, sometimes.
-Gandalf
Many are the strange chances of the world, and help oft shall come from the hands of the weak when the wise falter.
-Gandalf
May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.
-Gandalf
Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars.
-Gandalf
Naked I was sent back - for a brief time, until my task is done.
-Gandalf
No! cried Gandalf, springing to his feet. With that power I should have power too great and terrible. And over me the Ring would gain a power still greater and more deadly. His eyes flashed and his face was lit as by a fire within. Do not tempt me! For I do not wish to become like the Dark Lord himself. Yet the way of the Ring to my heart is by pity, pity for weakness and the desire of strength to do good. Do not tempt me! I dare not take it, not even to keep it safe, unused. The wish to wield it would be too great for my strength. I shall have such need of it. Great perils lie before me.
-Gandalf
Only a small part is played in great deeds by any hero
-Gandalf
Pay heed to the tales of old wives. It may well be that they alone keep in memory what it was once needful for the wise to know.
-Gandalf
Pity? It was Pity that stayed his hand. Pity, and Mercy: not to strike without need. And he has been well rewarded, Frodo. Be sure that he took so little hurt from the evil, and escaped in the end, because he began his ownership of the Ring so. With Pity.
-Gandalf
So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
-Gandalf
Something has crept, or has been driven out of dark waters under the mountains. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.
-Gandalf
The board is set, the pieces are moving. We come to it at last, the great battle of our time.
-Gandalf
The burned hand teaches best. After that advice about fire goes to the heart.
-Gandalf
The treacherous are ever distrustful.
-Gandalf
The wise speak only of what they know
-Gandalf
The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.
-Gandalf
Then darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell.
-Gandalf
This is the Master-ring, the One Ring to rule them all. This is the One Ring that he lost many ages ago, to the great weakening of his power. He greatly desires it but he must not get it.
-Gandalf
To crooked eyes truth may wear a wry face.
-Gandalf
To me it would not seem that a Steward who faithfully surrenders his charge is diminished in love or in honour.
-Gandalf
Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace!
-Gandalf
Yet a treacherous weapon is ever a danger to the hand.
-Gandalf
Deep is the abyss that is spanned by Durins Bridge, and none has measured it, said Gimli. Yet it has a bottom, beyond light and knowledge, said Gandalf.
-Gandalf Gimli
No, my heart will not yet despair. Gandalf fell and has returned and is with us. We may stand, if only on one leg, or at least be left still upon our knees.
-Pippin
