That must be Gimli, as three hunters spoke with Gandalf and learned that Pippin and Merry were alive, but I was not able to locate the exact quote as yet. Would it suffice? If yes, please provide an original too, ok?

silly me, ah

Ah, not in the forest, but later. Ninny-willy I am!

It is Gimli, and he talks to Legolas, but in the Minas-Tirith, much later than my first guess.

It is good to learn that they are still alive,’ said Gimli; ‘for they cost us great pains in our march over Rohan, and I would not have such pains all wasted
Sorry for wasting your time

Question

I've been pondering about this one for a long time now, determined to solve it, but alas, this Swiss German proves to be too hard for me without a hint (or two)...

Don't count that as pride and arrogance, Mariska, I do not intend to show off I simply forgot about it. I suppose I know the answer - it is Sam and Sam's inner voice in Mordor:

Quote:
There you are!’ came the answer. ‘It’s all quite useless. He said so himself. You are the fool, going on hoping and toiling. You could have lain down and gone to sleep together days ago, if you hadn’t been so dogged. But you’ll die just the same, or worse. You might just as well lie down now and give it up. You’ll never get to the top anyway
Antwort (answer), Narr (Fool), hofft (hopes) and Tage (days) gave it away, and 'alles ganz nutzlos' sounded like 'all came to zero=nothing=useless

cheers

lodka = boat

Timor mortis conturbat me

With many apologies since it is a very long time sinceI attempted a French prose piece and my "serieux" dictionary has disintegrated - and I am afraid - you will have to manage without accents :

"Mais, pour tout cela, La Mort ne partit pas du pays. Au contraire elle venait plus tot et plus souvent et en catamini. Antan, les hommes viellissaient lentement et se coucherent a reposer finalement, quand ils se lassaient enfin du monde, alors la folie et la maladie les assaillaient, pourtant ils avaient peur de mourir, d'entrer dans le noir, le royaume du seigneur qu'ils avaient pris, et ils se maudissaient dans leur agonie."

It's from AKALLABÊTH. Technically it is not a quote, but a description of a decay that befell the men of Westernesse in the time of last kings:

Quote:
But for all this Death did not depart from the land, rather it came sooner and more often, and in many dreadful guises. For whereas aforetime men had grown slowly old, and had laid them down in the end to sleep, when they were weary at last of the world, now madness and sickness assailed them; and yet they were afraid to die and go out into the dark, the realm of the lord that they had taken; and they cursed themselves in their agony

No worries . Make sure you make it clear next time, though - that is, mark it with 'author's narrative' flag or something

Well, well, well. It seems we haven't had obscure languages for a while. Let it be Arabic:

Quote:
A’mallu an la eestaruhhu abadan ar-reehee t-tufahee
Not to make it impossible right from the start, here's the clue:

At-tufah=apple

PS And I hope there are no Arabs proper around to mock out my pathetic attempts

Hm, I can only think of two instances where apples are mentioned, and all three sentences somehow don't fit this arabic quote. In two of them, the apples aren't at the end , and the third sentence is too short.

The original the quote is translated from has the apples not exactly in the end, but one word prior. I don't know the proper grammatical term in English, but in Arabic, if something belongs/proceeds to/from something else, the 'owner/originator' has to be put in the end of the construction, if you follow my meaning

Clumsy paragon: in English, 'Donny's book' and 'book of Donny' are equally correct forms, in Arabic only 'book of Donny' may be used

Another hint: Quoth the Dwarven (Nevermore)

while I pondered weak and weary,

And yet they are not quite interchangeable ... and now I know exactly what it is - it is the dwarf who grumbled about his barrel smelling of apples and he was hungry but now out he could eat anything for hours on end - but not an apple ... and I don't have the Hobbit with me and I can't remember the dwarf's name - but it wan't Quoth!

So are you an Edgar Allen Poe fan or is that just from TP?

'There're some grey trees,' than I muttered, 'tapping at my chamber door...'

'Mithalwen, say I, 'My Lady, my applauses for your lore;
For the fact is it was Fili and so grumbling he came nagging,
With his empty belly sagging, soaked on the barrel floor,
That he scarce was sure he heard him- Bilbo opening freedom's door!'

Exact quote is the following:

Quote:
I hope I never smell the smell of apples again
Nevermore (in this case, never + again) = abadan

Now you serve, and nothing more!

Why thank you kind sir ... I rather hoped someone might produce the exact quote and spare me the unequal struggle a little longer.... at least I can spare myself teh past historic if I quote speech ... but the perfect tense has all those horrid agreeements ... Alors ...... it will alas be French again .... unless I find a short and simple quote......

Quoth the raven was a bit of a joke even before Mr Pratchett ..... someone famous, after a especially disagreable stay wrote in the Visitor's book of some hosue or hotel "Quoth the Raven..."

I always meant to learn italian properly ... hmm can make out a few words but so far a bit beyond my coffee ordering, room booking skills combined with a fondness for opera and a small pinch of latin

But in fact, Italian is rather similar to French... ( My Italian is founded on my knowlegde of French! perhaps you try looking at it from that viewpoint.
Fuggire = fuir, paura = peur
