I dont get it.
« on: July 17, 2009, 10:28:33 AM »

From what I understand about things in life the following does not make sence.....

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
- J. R. R. Tolkien

This breaks my head..
Can someone explain this correctly please.

Thats step one.

Step two: Realize that the man who spoke said quote has hobbits and wizards and other random crap floating around in his head.  I dont think its supposed to make sense.

I'm not too sure I get it either, but I certainly have to agree. :P

Maybe he's talking to a group of people?

I don't know half of you *pause*   half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you *pause*   half as well as you deserve.

That's about the best i can come up with.

If we are talking straight out of lord of the rings.  Its Bilbo talking to an extremely large group(basically the entire town).

Half the people he doesn't know very well and wishes he did.
Then another batch of them he does know, he doesn't like much, but apparently doesn't have a very good reason for it.  They're good people and he should like them, but apparently doesn't.

That summarize it decently?
