The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

 

Bilbo Baggins

    The hobbit, born in 2890 in the Shire. Was a bachelor who lived in Bag
End. In 2941, Gandalf the Wizard and 13 dwarves came to him for a quest that resulted
in the death of Smaug the Dragon. Having won a share of the dwarven gold, he returned
with his prize possession a magic ring that made him invisible. It was later revealed that
the ring of Bilbo’s was really the One Ring. The ring was given to his nephew Frodo, and
he moved to Rivendell. He wrote his memoirs called “There and Back again.” After the
War of the Ring Bilbo went sailed off with Frodo to the Undying Lands.
