Tdwald to Torhthelm:

"Aye, that's the battle for you,
and no worse today than wars you sing of,
when Frda fell, and Finn was slain.
The world wept then, as it weeps today:
you can hear the tears through the harp's
twanging. . ."

I should have thought it was a nice boy with a friendly grin, eh?!

Master Nokes talking to Prentice about the missing Star trinket from the Great Cake:

"Oh, did she? Well, it was Cooper's Harry then. A barrel of a boy with a big mouth like a frog's."

Welcome back, Estelyn! The above quote is from a work that was not written in prose. It is also a rather obscure work.

That was a tough one, since it's from a very obscure work indeed! I finally found it:

That was quite a tricky one, Esty! You had me rummaging to find it for quite a while. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

It was a little man, whose name he had forgotten that the Professor wrote of in "A secret Vice".

oh laziness imposed by the use of "find" option of MS Word! Both you esteemed lore masters (and mistresses) failed to notice that speaker named is wrong [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img], for it is Corrigan speaking and no other...

yet since the passage given is absolutely correct, I count it as a score and invite you to proceed [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I thought you were talking about the Barrow-Downs forum, Squatter, but I found out that the quote has a different source! It's the seagull Mew, speaking to Roverandom of the Isle of Lost Dogs.
