I'm sorry, I forgot this thread was going again. And I don't have UT anymore to check. My guess would be somewhere in Tuor's wanderings just before the storm during which Ulmo spoke with him.

Sting one more hint

You don't need U.T. for this one, it is in "The Children of Húrin" as well!

When I didn't find it in the likely places, I reread COH... It's not a bad thing by itself, but for a quote...

Quote:
But night is a cold counsellor, and many were now amazed at their own rashness;...
When the Haladhrim went with Niniel to Nen Girith while Turin, Dorlas, and Hunthor went forth to fight Glaurung.

Thumbs up

Well done, Galadriel55!
I now have rather a bad conscience, wasting so much of your time...
But many is the time I was browsing in one of the books in search of a quote and found myself rereading whole chapters and more, getting caught up in the tale again.

Nonesense! Reading Tolkien is never a waste of time!

I read through quite a bit of material to find another one, and I hope it wasn't used before. If it was I'll be very cross with myself.

Aragorn to his mother at their last meeting, trying to comfort her:
