"Yet if it stands but a little while, then out of your house shall come the hope of Elves and Men. This I say to you, lord, with the eyes of death: though we part here forever, and I shall not look on your white walls again, from you and from me a new star shall arise. Farewell!"

Yes, it's Beren. The quote is from the song that he made for Luthien, just before she came 'dressed' in Thuringwethil's shape...

"Go your way therefore! Bring to me in your hand a Silmaril from Morgoth's crown; and then, if she will, Lúthien may set her hand in yours."

Too easy, I know.

It's just politeness. You know. Another fairly-easy one:

Correct. I wanted to pull out a random quote from the text instead of a well known quote normally used. You still ended up getting it right! :P

I sort of guessed. The quote just sounded familiar.

We seem to be playing by ourselves, MM!

Let's try for another random quote...

"A king or the lord of a great host has many needs."

What happened to this thread? How come it died down?

The whole Quotes section is kinda down lately. Dunno.

Let's revive it!

That's Eru talking to Ulmo about Melkor in the early Silmarillion chapters (either Ainulindale or Valaquenta or something nearby).



I'm glad this thread is alive again!
