Oops - okay, here it is; yet another place where Bilbo quotes the end of his hypothetical book:

Quote:
I had thought of putting: and he lived happily ever afterwards to the end of his days.


Bilbo was a lot like Tolkien himself: doomed to spend his life tinkering with and revising his writings, so that in the end he managed to leave a small handful of finished works and a ton of promising fragments.

That’s the one!

This was an interesting one, completely by chance. :).

The word "confusion" is not in the original, but it's kinda-sorta a synonym of a word from the real quote. I can see where it came from, anyway.

No, Bilbo wasn't present when it was spoken.

I guess I can ease back into this thread.

Was it spoken by or to a hobbit?

Is it said around the same time as "Is everything sad going to come untrue"?
