"I look East, West, North, South, and I do
not see Sauron, but I see that Saruman has
many descendants. We Hobbits have
against them no magic weapons. Yet, my
gentlehobbits, I give you this toast: To the
Hobbits. May they outlast the Sarumans
and see spring again in the trees."
-J.R.R. Tolkien, from a 1958 speech
