Pardon? How do you mean, what message is too short?

as for the quote, that is Tolkien himself, about (alleged) Escapism inherent to fantasy and the people apt tp criticize it

Ah, at last a quote in this thread that I recognize!

It's from "Smith of Wootton Major" (which I recently have read for the first time) .
The smith says this to his son Ned, after giving back the star.

"The name of grandfather hasn't weakened my arm yet a while. Let the work come!"

That was Prentice, speaking to Nokes, who was wondering what happened to the Faery star in the cake in Smith of Wootton Major.

Ah, tricky princess

At first I thought that must have been either priest or any one other from the village known (in vulgar) as Ham to the smith of said village, concerning Aegidius A.J. Agricola's chain mail, but it proved itself to be Artaxerxes to Rover, when the latter was continuosly mispelling his name

Quote:
'Please, Mr Arterxaxes, I mean Ertaxarxes,' began Rover, rather flustered and trying to be very polite.
'O never mind about getting it right! I don't mind!' said the wizard rather crossly

The witch Corrigan is speaking to Aotrou:
Quote:
He thanked her, trembling, offering gold
to withered fingers shrunk and old.
The thanks she took not, nor the fee,
but laughing croaked: "Nay, we shall see!
Let thanks abide till thanks be earned!
Such potions oft, men say, have burned
the heart and brain, or else are nought,
only cold water dearly bought.
Such lies you shall not tell of me;
Till it is earned I'll have no fee.
But we shall meet again one day,
and rich reward then you shall pay,
whate'er I ask: it may be gold,
it may be other wealth you hold."
