I do believe that sounds like Labadal, Turin's friend. Said after Turin gave him a gift of a tool he had found lying around. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I'm probably wrong :/ but Celeborn expressed a similar sentiment when speaking to Aragorn

Huh? My dad said that, darn it! Are you denying it? People may say, "Life's not fair," but only my dad said, "Life's not supposed to be fair." At least, he's the only one I've heard say that, or even heard of.

Gandalf, to Frodo. When Frodo says that he wishes Bilbo had "killed that wretched creature" (Gollum), Gandalf says (this is not exactly right) "Many live that deserve death, and some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement..." Something like that.

Hi HerenIstarion!

To answer your quote...

Quote:

That was Legolas to Gimli, trying to comfort him as they leave Lorien. Gimli had found the beauty of Galadriel and now must lose it.

Alright, I've waited more than 10 days for HerenIstarion to come back. So I'm going to ask one. Besides it is my birthday*, and HI ought to have given me the go-ahead as a birthday present! It is my birthday. It ought to be my turn.

Happy birthday, Lost.!

I'm hazy on this one, but felt since it's your birthday, someone should play.

It was said to Aragorn, concerning the coming of the Dunedain from the north? By.. hmm.. I loaned my TTT to a friend of a friend.

Sorry, it wasn't said to Aragorn. But it is in The Two Towers.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

Well, there was an instance where someone said it in Bree. (It was also said somewhere else.) But it wasn't Sam to Frodo in Bree.
