Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick. (from The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien)

Happy Hobbit Week, y’all! Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit, which is definitely something worth celebrating. Go out and have an adventure in Bilbo’s honor.
