It is Gandalf talking to Frodo and Gimli about Dain's death:
"I should call that a heavy loss, if it was not a wonder rather that in his great age he could still wield his axe as mightily..."

Correct Elf-Warrier. Thankfully, I still had the bookmark left in place...I had forgotten the answer and would have had to search for it!
Good job...your turn.

This is Thorin Oakenshield to Gandalf, referring to his so-called "halls".

Quote:
Gandalf looked at him with wonder. 'That is strange, Thorin Oakenshield ,' he said. 'For I have thought of you also; and though I am on my way to the Shire, it was in my mind that is the way also to your halls.'

'Call them so, if you will,' said Thorin. 'They are only poor lodgings in exile. But you would be welcome there, if you would come. For they say that you are wise and know more than any other of what goes on in the world; and I have much on my mind and would be glad of your counsel.'
- tLotR, Appendix A, III Durin's Folk

I believe that was Sauron to Ar-Pharazon in Appendix A.

Quote:
And Sauron lied to the King, declaring that everlasting life would be his who possessed the Undying Lands, and that the Ban was imposed only to prevent the Kings of Men from surpassing the Valar. 'But great Kings take what is their right,' he said. - Sauron to Ar-Pharazon

Yes, Hiriel, you are correct. And thanks for taking the time to type out the quote in context so everyone can find it.

I like this quote - I find it mildly amusing that an Age later, a great King does take what is his right and helps to destroy Sauron in the bargain:

Quote:
'You forget to whom you speak,' said Aragorn sternly, and his eyes glinted. 'Did I not openly proclaim my title before the doors of Edoras? What do you fear that I should say to him? Nay, Gimli,' he said in a softer voice, and the grimness left his face, and he looked like one who has laboured in sleepless pain for many nights. 'Nay, my friends, I am the lawful master of the Stone, and I had both the right and the strength to use it, or so I judged. The right cannot be doubted. The strength was enough – barely.'
tRotK, The Passing of the Grey Company

Your turn! Good luck - there's not a lot of dialogue in the Appendices to choose from.

De nada. And yes indeed, the parallel is very interesting and ironic. I hadn't noticed that before.
