Quote of the Day

Following Bęthberry's excellent thread idea (Best Post of the Week), I would have it modified a bit.

In this thread, we will quote one another. Especially clever, or funny remarks and sentences belong here. It would be nice to indicate the source the quotation is taken from too, for, though out of context the phrases may seem even better, it is nice to know its origin.

Let the show begin, than

First quote of the Day is by davem:

Quote:
The Balrog was making itself 'bigger' - like a cat raising its hackles...
From Do Balrogs Have Wings? by Fordim.

There is no requirement to take new quotes only. I have some nominees in mind I have to dig up the threads to find their quotes from days of yore yet.

Cheers

I nominate The Saucepan Man's
Quote:
But then again, as Tolkien himself once again illustrates on many occasions, it is sometimes appropriate to have incredibly lengthy sentences, sentences which are perhaps heavy with descriptive words, or those where complex and related ideas are best grouped together, or even where that is the manner in which a particular character speaks - and so the length of his sentences enhance the credibility of his dialogue; and in such cases I see no reason not to indulge oneself in a nice lengthy sentence.

I second this nomination. Way to express the controversies endlessly debated by Tolkien freaks in one hilarious, epic phrase. Earns a wide grin from most Downers, I'd expect.

This was made by Aylwen Dreamsong and is from a rather older post and, as you may have guessed, it is from an RPG, namely Bloodstained Elanor, a game from about this time last year. This game is one of my favourites: the writing standard was spectacular throughout, I think, as were the characters. But from all the RPGs you play, a few lines stick in your mind, and this one always has. It just takes such an unusual, bittersweet perspective on the elves. Ehan, Aylwen's character in 'Bloodstained Elanor' came out with some marvellous lines, but this one particularly has always stuck with me.

The day which was almost two years ago

It's inexplicable why did not I read the Psychological depth in Tolkien's characters at the time of its occurrence, but here I am, reading it for the first time and enjoying it to an extent I've temporarily run out of repute to spread around. It was a hard choice to choose between runner-ups up to post #32 I'm currently at, but Lush surely snatches the prize for the common sense, slight irony, sagacity and, I daresay, even audacity displayed all in one phrase, which I now proudly present:

Quote:

Although it's been awhile I think that this bit from Fordim sums up the Tol-In-Gaurhoth games quite well:

Quote:
It is rather entertaining -- not to mention dangerously addictive. As the deadline was approaching this morning, I was hunkered in my office, ignoring the knock at my door, and calling out that I would get to my next appointment "in a few minutes..."
The game is suspenseful and addicting no matter if you're playing in it or not.

Too bad some villagers had a lapse in judgment (haha...wait. Only Filipinos or those who monitor the political situation here in the Philippines - like anybody would - will understand that.), but I'd like to nominate this word of wisdom from the late great Eomer of the Rohirrim in Werewolf VI:
Quote:
Remember that it's very easy to see another person as a wolf once you get the idea into your head. Take a step back and look at what you're doing.

It stands poised between the author and the reader, so clearly something is required from both in order for the circuit to be completed. I simply do not understand why one should have to be the master, as though one were to ask whether the ability to speak or the ability to understand were more important in conversation

I can't resist another Werewolf quote, this one from The Barrow-Wight in the very first Tol-In-Gaurhoth related post ever :

Quote:
Werewolf is a game of accusation, deduction, lying, reverse psychology and bandwagoning. Moreover, it's a lot of fun.
Pretty much sums up the entire game in two short sentences.

Truly the deeper meaning of Tolkien. Durelin, my dear, I'm getting quite worried about you...

Mark/Helen to davem in post 19 of Canon: what ARE we babbling about?

There are many more scholarly points in the thread that are worth quoting, but this one made me start laughing madly.

Now it's davem with his post #36

Master davem holds the line alone against many, and though yours truly is one of the many assailing his dug-out, I can't help but admire his passion and pertinacity of his defense. Praise him with great praise

PS
Others things elves do not:

1. Elves do not bang their heads against walls and shout 'bad [name of particular elf], bad [name of particular elf].
2. Elves do not wear pillowcases
3. Elves do not look like Russian President Mr. Putin
4. Ah, almost forgot - elves do not kidnap former clowns, now kings named Verence


PPS
Post Scriptum being an aside 'for humour's sake', nothing more
