Here's a cruddy one:

"perhaps you are right but even if they are weak you owe them gratitude for it is because of them the enemy fell at all"

"if it stood but a little higher from the ground"
"you would die before your stroke fell fell"
"and in a blind wrath I would strike you, or worse."
then aragorn jumps into to save the day

ok one more guess then i'm done

Treebeard to Merry and Pippin (i don't have the exact quote but here it is as best as i know)

"turn around let me see your faces for i think that should not like you and in a blind wrath i would strike you or worse, but let's not be hasty turn around"

Ring

Morsul, I want to give it to you. Your answers are funny & could work, but still none of them are right.

Here's a hint: The icon that I use on this post has something to do with the answer.

Oh wow the ring the book is only called The Lord of The Rings everything is connected to the ring.

however since you were kind enough to put a hint I will venture my fourth guess(persistant arent I?)

Smeagal to Deagal.

"give it to us my precious my love."
"why?"
"Because it's my birthday and I wants it and in a blind wrath I would strike you or worse"
"I already gave you a present."

they fight please let it be right

sorry to butt in...

but I have another guess: Boromir becoming infuriated with Frodo:
"For I am too strong for you, halfling, and in blind wrath I would strike you or worse." Though that's probably not it either, because it's a conditional where a future tense 'would' make more sense.

Hey, that's a great quote and great guesses too.

Sam to Gollum?

Frodo- You won't run away Sam, will you? Gollum.
Gollum-Know master we leads it to the black gate.
Frodo the ring will hold you to your word.
Sam- and I would strike you or worse.
Frodo- why do you do that?
Sam do what?
F- call him names run him down
ect...

Sorry, Evisse & Morsul, those aren't what I'm looking for. Perhaps a less vague hint is in order.

The line would have been spoken by a Ringbearer to a companion.

You're on the right track. Here's a semi-hint: the 'blind wrath' is directly related to the last word in the real sentence.

"If I am angry it's your fault! and in a blind wrath I would strike you or worse you want it for yourself."

"Bilbo Baggins!"

You were on the right track when you said, "so it's frodo to sam just dont know where." Think tower.

lol. Maybe it's this one?:

"No, no!" cried Frodo, snatching the Ring and chain from Sam's hands. 'No, you won't you thief! And in a blind wrath I would strike you or worse"

What goes around comes around, and I've watched it way to long without interfering , so it seems fair enough to try my teeth on the pie:

Quote:
O Sam!’ cried Frodo. What have I said? What have I done? Forgive me! After all you have done...and in blind wrath I would strike you, or worse It is the horrible power of the Ring. I wish it had never, never, been found. But don’t mind me, Sam. I must carry the burden to the end. It can’t be altered. You can’t come between me and this doom.’
But as it was Morsul to give me hint with his Cirith Ungol guess, I'd gladly pass the right to proceed over to him (that is, in case my answer is correct)

I suppose it is Morsul's turn, than.

Just out of curiosity: were it me or Evisse with the correct guess?

NOTE: I use all movie quotes for this becauser I can't quote the book as well as you all just keep that in mind for this one:

"Oh that I would that it were Gandalf and not this BEAST that lived here for he is perhaps the only one I trully say is with me."

it's been a while...

Dear Morsul

seeing how we all are stumped, would you care to reveal the answer, and, as a victor, pose as a new question (but books this time, ple-ease, not movies, as the thread is, in general, book-oriented)

cheers

No, it's not that, the non quote was spoken earlier than that. And 'springtime' is mentioned in that dialogue but not by the speaker of the non-quote.

I will venture a guess. In the chapter titled "Lothlorien" Legolas describes the woods of Lothlorien . . .
Quote:
'There lie the woods of Lothlorien!' said Legolas. 'That is the fairest of all the dwellings of my people. There are no trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring comes and the new green opens do they fall, and then the boughs are laden with yellow flowers; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey. So still our songs in Mirkwood say. My heart would be glad if I were beneath the eaves of that wood, and it were springtime!'

'My heart will be glad, even in the winter,' said Aragorn. 'But it lies many miles away. Let us hasten!' . . .
". . .or in springtime we may indeed behold it."

Is that it?

This might be a bit tricky (hopefully):

Tried to see them all private he did. I gave him what for. I wouldn't even take a message.

No, its not the Gaffer, and it's not according to Sam. It's later in the story, outside the Shire.

It's been a week, so how about a hint?

The non-quote occurs five chapters later in the book than it would in the story, if the conversation had actually occured in the book. It is related to us by someone else many miles from where it would have happened.

I'll give another hint in a few days if no one gets it sooner.
