"Do not despise the lore that has come down from distant years; for oft it may chance that old wives keep in memory things that were once needful for the wise to know."

'Indeed we have heard of Fangorn in Minas Tirith,' said Boromir. 'But what I have heard seems to me for the most part old wives' tales, such as we tell to our children. All that lies north of Rohan is now to us to far away that fancy can wander freely there. Of old Fangorn lay upon the borders of our realm; but it is now many lives of men since any of us visited it, to prove or disprove the legends that have come down from distant years." ....
'Then I need say no more,' said Celeborn. 'But do not despise the lore that has come down from distant years; for oft it may chance that old wives keep in memory word of things that once were needful for the wise to know.'

(but) I have no time for the simples of peasants.'"
lt is Tolkien related!
not that difficult was it? But it's your turn now.
"We don't often see Shire-Folk riding on the Road at night," he went on, as they halted a moment by his door. "You'll pardon my wondering what business takes you away east of Bree! What may your names be, might I ask?"
"Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."
(l mean Sevrinn)
"Gibbets and Crows! Dotard! What is the house of Eorl but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek, and their brats roll around on the floor with their dogs!"
Not from the movies!
"Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes."
So, Tommie's right! - in my book anyway lol
Try this one:
Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
Nice one, Gildor! Over to you again then...
"Here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea, comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil."
Not that hard....
Wild guess: Aragorn!!??
That's wrong I know it!!
