Well, l'm good at it too, for it was Winston Churchill who said that! Tongue Smilie
Yes indeed! Big Smile Smilie

Your turn again!
Yahoo!!! Tongue Smilie

But it is time for a hard one now:

Quote:
"He who breaks a thing to find out what it is, has left the path of wisdom."


Haha Animated Wink Smilie
Was that Tolkien by any chance?????
I'm pretty sure it was Gandalf but I can't remember when he says it.

Do I win anyway?
Yeah, it sounds like something that Gandalf would say to Merry.
OK.... who said...

Quote:
Yet I do not bid you flee from peril, but to ride to battle where your sword may win renown and victory.
Elrond?

Here's a quote if I'm right, because I can never tell when i can next be on PT (Homework)

Quote:
In which case it is no longer white. And he that breaks something just to see what it is has left the path of wisdom.


(Pretty easy one for some of us, but it's all I could think of)
Well hard cheesy luck Loni! It wasn't Elrond!

Ha!

Eowyn says it to Aragorn in ROTK
Gandalf said it to Saruman as he recounted to the Council of Elrond in FotR.


Quote:
'He'd follow Mr. Frodo into a dragon's den ...'
Yes, Sevrin, Eowyn said it to Aragorn.

Your turn.
Quote:
"I amar prestar aen... han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae a han nostan ned gwilith"


Clue - From 'The Two Towers'
Galadriel.

Try this one.

Quote:
Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of war.
It's from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Will that do? lol
General Chang said it to Captain Kirk in The Undiscovered Country too!
Who said, "I guess I just don't understand the rules of this game."?

sounds like me when watching my first NFL game when on holiday in LA.....

otherwise you got me there Grondy!
Who's asking what now? I'm a little confused. Orc Going Huh Smilie

Tommie said that and I said the one before because I hadn't realized Loni's question was out of order and my answer to it wasn't wrong after all, just ignored.

Who said:
Quote:
'Death you can give me earned or unearned; but the names I will not take from you of baseborn, nor spy, nor thrall. ...'
Was it Beren?

Ooh, ok, thanks Grondy! Big Smile Smilie

Yes it was, Stoney, you beat me to it. Cool Smilie
Stonehelm's right with Beren, which was sa id to Thingol. Your turn Stoney. Happy Elf Smilie
Ok, here goes.

Quote:
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
One of my favourites! Winston Churchill.

I know that's right, so I'll give you another one:

Quote:
Love is an irresistable desire to be irresistably desired.
i have absolutely no idea
Quote:
Love is an irresistable desire to be irresistably desired


Mark Twain?
Nope.

We are looking for a very famous mathematician / scientist / god-knows-what-more.
Robert Frost? ?
Albert Einstein!


And if i'm wrong i'll jolly well eat my HAT!
You won't have to, Lord aelric, Einstein it was.

So you go next!
Seems like Lord Aelric doesn't want to play this game anymore. I'll quote something then:

Quote:
"Old fool!' he said. 'Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain!"
Quote:
"Old fool!' he said. 'Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain!"


Witch-king of Angmar?
You're right! Smile Smilie You're turn Smile Smilie
Quote:
"Both rings were round, and there the resemblance ceased
."

Who said the above quote and what were they referring to?
Tolkien, when LOTR was compared with Wagner's Ring Opera.

Quote:
"Out of the Great Sea to Middle-earth I am come. In this place will I abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world!"
Aragorn. Big Smile Smilie

Quote:
How do you feel about women's rights ? I like either side of them.
I thought Aragorn sings in Elvish saying that quote during his coronation as King?


ooh, Gil, you deleted your post, mate - Tommie is right I believe!! Smile Smilie
Yup.... When I reread it I noticed with a shock she was right and I'm wrong Tongue Smilie Don't tell anybody, ok? Tongue Smilie
Ah dont worry, wont tell a soul!! Big Smile Smilie
Tommie, yours was Groucho Marx. Big Smile Smilie

Quote:
He would, wouldn't he?
Yup! The Great Groucho Marx! Big Smile Smilie

I'm guessing it might have something to do with Douglas Adams, but it's very vague, Pere! Could you drop a hint? lol
Sorry Tommie, it's not Douglas Adams. If you want a hint, it comes from a court case in the 1960's.
guys that is not fair!!!, I have not a single clue about who is Groucho marx ( or is it mars? LOL) Elf With a Big Grin Smilie ..., Is he part of Tolkiens Books???

And Pere...., that is cheating... there must be like a thousand quotes exactly the same in just one of tolkien┤s books. remember that some of us have never been able to get the enlish version.
Wink Smilie

Greetings, it is good to see you all again.
Welcome back, Thingol! Big Smile Smilie Groucho Marx is one of the Marx' Brothers, a rather well-known comic group. They made great films, like "A night at the opera" and "A day at the races". Groucho said some great things, worth quoting... Animated Wink Smilie

Pere: Mandy Rice-Davies?
Quote:
Pere: Mandy Rice-Davies?
Right case, wrong person.
In that case, I don't have a clue... Google doesn't seem to know it. Animated Wink Smilie
Thanks Tommie, it is good to hear about you too Big Smile Smilie

so who was it pere?
I'll better post a new one and Pere can give the answer to his whenever he drops in again.

So who said this?:

Quote:
Humor is mankind's greatest blessing.
Mark Twain?? I have a quote by him that is very similar but could this be so close there is hardly a difference? MEaning that I could, in all probabilty, get it right?? Hee hee... Big Smile Smilie
