A vanimar, vanimalion nostari!
Verily, that way lies our hope, where sits our greatest fear. Doom hangs still on a thread. Yet hope there is still, if we can but stand unconquered for a little while.
all that ill news stuff makes you so much think of gandalf... that wasn't actually said by him?
Y'know, upon reading it again I think that could be considered a guess of Gandalf.
Congrats Ithil, Gandalf (who is named Lathspell or ill-news in the scene where the quote was spoken) is the speaker.
Your turn to post a quote.
I had not heard that folk of the Shire were so sweet-tongued. But I see you are an elf-friend; the light in your eyes and the ring in your voice tells it. ...
Who enlightened Frodo with the following line?
"I doubt very much if your friends would be in danger if you were not with them! The pursuit would follow you and leave us in peace, I think."
Whose words are these:
The Elves have their own labours and their own sorrows, and they are little concerned with the ways of hobbits, or of any other creatures upon earth.
Now try to guess who said these words:
"This is the hour of the Shire-folk, when they arise from their quiet fields, to shake the towers and counsels of the Great. Who of all the Wise could have foreseen it?"
From the mouths of the sea the south wind flies, from the sandhills and the stones...
'I used to be anxious when the shadow lay on Mirkwood, but when it removed to Mordor, I did not trouble for a while: Mordor is a long way away.'
Whose words are
There is much to tell, good and bad,yet it is mostly good: we have so far been fortunate, though we do not escape the shadow of these times. If you really wish to hear of us, I will tell you tidings gladly.
I think it's the dwarf that is sitting next to Frodo in Rivendell, Gloin. Pretty sure.
Does anyone know who spoke the following:
"You are quite old. As old as my uncle Iorlas, still I wager I could stand you on your head or lay you on your back."
All Isengard must be emptied; and Saruman has armed the wild hillmen and herd-folk of Dunland beyond the rivers, and these also he loosed upon us. We were overmastered. The shield-wall was broken. Erkenbrand of Westfold has drawn off those men he could gather towards his fastness in Helm's Deep.
This should be an easy one:
Nay, the guest who has escaped from the roof, will think twice before he comes back in by the door.
"... to go back is to admit defeat, and face worse defeat to come."
Who said the following:
"Comfort me not with wizards. The fool's hope has failed. The enemy has found it, and now his power waxes; he sees our very thoughts, and all we do is ruinous."
"Don't pretend that Goblins can't count. They can. ..."
"Give me a row of orc-necks and room to swing and all weariness will fall from me!"
And as this thread has been without a new quote for a while, I'll post one myself. Who spoke the following, and to whom was it spoken:
"One who cannot cast away a treasure at need is in fetters. You did rightly."
Aragorn to merry and pip
As soon as I clapped eyes on the little fellow bobbing and puffing on the mat I had my doubts. He looks more like a grocer than a burglar.
And the quote is by Gloin in Bilbo's house when Thorin and Company were interviewing the hobbit for the job of retrieving the Treasure of Erebor, out from under Smaug's snout.
I immediately had a feeling that I was wanted back. Looking behind I saw a fire in the distance and made for it.
Who said: “Now we had better have it again.”?
Let's see if any of you remember this line, who quipped it and to whom:
Mercy! If the giving of information is to be the cure of your inquisitiveness, I shall spend all the rest of my days in answering you. What more do you want to know?
Out of doubt, out of dark, to the day's rising
he rode singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.
Hope he rekindled, and in hope ended;
over death, over dread, over doom lifted
out of loss, out of life, unto long glory.out of fire...
who and where and why?
Hmmm... gimme a minute to come up with a good quote.
I have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner! I can't think what anybody sees in them.
Someone please post the new quote if I'm right.
Eowyn, how come you here? What madness or devilry is this? Death, death, death! Death take us all!
