"Are you sure that you are choosing the right companions for this journey, Thorin?" asked Gandalf the Wizard. "These dwarves must be ready not only for the hard journey ahead and battles, but to accept my burglar, too."
"Do not worry, Gandalf," Thorin said, "I will accept anyone who wants a share of the treasure, and can wield a weapon, and I think that's enough."
"My burglar may surprise you, in more ways than one," said Gandalf.
"I'm sure he will," replied Thorin impatiently. "Now please let me be; I have companions to choose."
"Of course." May you choose well.
