' 'Certainly it reminds me very much of Bilbo in the last years, before he went away. He often used to say there was only one road; that it was like a great river, its springs were at every doorstep and every path was a tributary. "It’s a dangerous business Frodo, going out of your front door," he used to say. "You step onto the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to." - JRR Tolkien The Lord of the Rings
