Quote:
Monet niistä, jotka elävät ansaitsevat kuoleman. Ja jotkut jotka kuolevat ansaitsisivat elämän. Pystytkö sinä antamaan sen heille? Älä sitten ole niin innokas jakamaan kuolemantuomioita. Eivät edes kaikkein viisaimmat näe loppuun asti.
Quote:
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.

Actually, you know what? I'll do one. I think it is time for another Latin one...

Quote:
ubi? habes coniecturam? nam vidi ignes heri et nuntii; et Gandalf dixit ut signum est ut bellum coepierat.
If anyone here knows more than 2.5 years' latin, and can see a mistake, please correct me! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

That's Pippin to Beregond:

ut is what 'that' is is my dictionary, and it isn't the same kind of that as 'illud', so I take it to mean the 'that' I'm referring to. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Edit: Mr. Istarion, HOW DO YOU KNOW EVERYTHING LANGUAGE-RELATED? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

I do not (I was completely lost with finnish quote above, for instance). Yet thank you, for I count your exclamation as a compliment

*H-I bows*

The next quote to follow is:

Quote:

Hmm...is this from the movie(TTT)? I would guess it's Sam when he is preparing the rabbit- meal, but I can't find these lines in the book! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

"Titta!" ropade _____."Du har redan tagit en hälft av min sons kärlek. Nu tar du mina riddarens hjärtan och slutligen plundrar de min son från mig helt och hållet."

This should be fairly easy. I just hope that there aren't any Swedes here...they probably could make a whole language exercisebook based on all the mistakes that I have just made... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

At last, one that isn`t so difficult!! (Thank you, Nenya !)

It`s Denethor to Gandalf in "The pyre of Denethor".

"So!" cried Denethor. "Thou hadst already stolen half my son`s love. Now thou stealest the hearts of my knights also, so that they rob me wholly of my son at the last."

Hmmm what language shall I try this time?
I`ll make it Italian! We haven`t had that yet, have we.

"Allora amari saranno i giorni miei e camminerò solo nella selvaggia"

I hope that it isn`t too short a quote ... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Happy guessing, and a happy New Year to all my fellow-guessers !

I first thought it was Frodo at his departure from the company, well he was not, my next thought was Arwen/Aragorn and so I found it. Google did the job; the part was taken from my copy and released as a own book.

I'm afraid I'm only able to think in Russian today. Maybe English. When I get back to Udûn (school) I'll be able to do more languages (i.e. Bad French, bad German, so-so Latin) [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Question

This is just guesswork, I don`t know any Russian! (Except that "da" means yes.)
But from the order of the words, especially the repeated ones, I conclude, that it MIGHT be Gollum on the slopes of Mt Doom:

"Don`t kill us," he wept."Don`t hurt us with nassty cruel steel! Let us live, yes, live just a little longer. Lost lost! We`re lost. And when Precious goes we`ll die, yes, die into the dust."

Very nice quote, Guinevere! I hope my knowledge of German doesn't mean I have an unfair advantage in understanding Swiss dialect, but I couldn't resist! Éomer spoke:
Quote:
Now we feel the peril that we were warned of. Have we ridden forth to victory, only to stand at last amazed by an old liar with honey on his forked tongue?

That`s right, Estelyn ! Of course Swissgerman isn`t all too different from German. (But I thought at least one couldn`t use a "translating program" then...) [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Unfortunately, German and English are the only languages of which I know more than a few words, so my quote is in German:

Seine Trauer wird er nicht vergessen; aber sie wird sein Herz nicht verdunkeln, sondern ihm Weisheit lehren.
