Nope.... Gloin his father. I don't think Gimli had much to say at the Council.

It is a rather limiting topic for quotes, but if you expand it beyond The Council of Elrond, the topic heading will make no sense. Besides there are already many general LOTR, FOTR, TT, ROTK quotes threads going.

Perhaps when we've exhausted this chapter, we can tackle another. It's a great way to get to know the book well.

No, hobbitlass doesn't have it quite right. Gwaihir didn't say that in the chapter The Council of Elrond. There's a reason I didn't include the quotation marks. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

It's a technicality, I know, but that's why I chose this quote. Now you all know who actually said it, but the next turn goes to the first person to actually POST the answer! READY, SET, GO!

It's Gandalf saying to the council what Gwahir said to him. Is that what you are looking for?

It has been a week, time for the rest of the quote.

That's Aragorn to Boromir.

It's that old 'You think you have it tough? When I went to school, I had to walk ten miles with no shoes in a blizzard up hill - both ways!' Naw, these two guys aren't at all competitive.

Frodo? It really sounds like something he'd say. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Well, it might sound like something Frodo would say in The Shadow of the Past but not during The Council of Elrond. I think by the time of the Council, Frodo understood what had to be done and why. (By the way that's a bit of a hint.)

Try again.

Yes, hobbitlass, you got it. Poor Boromir just didn't 'get' it at the Council.

Elrond, speaking of going to Mordor.

I'm pretty sure I'm right, so...
