That's one of Bilbo's favourite sayings. He said it to himself in Smaug's lair, after having done just that.

Yess. But without the precious the Baggins would have been "literal" toast.

All right. This one may be a bit obscure. I think it counts as an aphorism.

"...it is one thing to see what needs doing, and quite another to find the means."

Answer should include exactly who the speaker is addressing.

You're right, Tuor!
"murder will out" refers to the fact that Boromir's horn was found. Your turn!

Ooh, bonus points. That would be that Sauron payed no more mind to Thrain than to get the Dwarven Ring. He missed the map and key, wise fool.
