Yes, there is a beautiful one at the end of that paragraph... which I'm not going to use now... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

This next one is just a part of a sentence, but it sounds so beautiful. I hope you agree...

Silmaril

That's Aragorn replying to Boromir's adage 'the wolf one hears is worse than the orc that one fears'. A Journey in the Dark - about 4 pages into that chapter.

I think that's Frodo advising his companions to behave sensibly when they arrive at the Prancing Pony. Chapter Fog on the Barrow Downs.
Am I right?

Alas, Evisse the Blue, that's not correct. It's a different speaker and a different chapter. But you're in the neighbourhood. Feel free to open the book and look for the quote. That is the point of these games - to get to know the book better - to have an "excuse" to read parts of it again.

I think I've got it.
Merry to The other (3)Hobbits.
In the Chapter-At the Sign of the Prancing Pony.
The part where Merry says it'lll get to stuffy and he may go out for a sniff of air later.

Yes, Sleepy Ranger, you have it!

Quote:
'I shall sit here quietly by the fire for a bit, and perhaps go out later for a sniff of the air. Mind your Ps and Qs, and don't forget that you are supposted to be escaping in secret, and are still on the high-road and not very far from the Shire!'
Merry is so sensible. (Well, except when he tried to follow the Black Rider a little while later.)

Your turn.

That's a very short quote, Sleepy!
Could you at least give a hint from which book it is? (I'd guess from the Silm or UT...)
