I'll give you a hint.

Think after the ring was destroyed.

10 days rule at work, I see. Might it be Frodo to Sam, just after, as your hint indicates, the Ring was destroyed?

If my guess is correct, I pass the right to continue to Evisse - she was spot on about Bombur in my previous My apologies for the delay to her too

Probably Pippin about his brooch to Frodo and Sam, when they were recounting their adventures after the break up of the Fellowship?

Arwen giving her white gem to Frodo? (I always took that to mean that, in this way, she symbolically surrenders her place on the ship to Valinor to him).

I'm thinking that it is Frodo speaking. Some time after they are all back in the Shire Sam comes into Bag End to find that Frodo is ill, lying in bed, fingering the white gem hanging from his neck. Frodo says something like, "It is lost and now all is darkness." then your quote would come in, "It was precious to me and I lost it with great pain."

You're close enough, Radagastly. It was Frodo to Farmer Cotton not Sam. The exact quote is "It is gone for ever," he said, "and now all is dark and empty." My fictional quote would go after the real one. Now it's your turn.

Sorry for the delay, but I didn't get a chance to check this weekend. So, here we go:

The walls of Gondor are strong, but they do not hold back all his dark minions.

Hint time

Two days and not a single response. It's not very obscure, but it may be too mundane to remember. Think about a great discussion.

Is this it?

"But men are better than gates, and no gate will endure against our Enemy if men desert it. The walls of Gondor are strong, but they do not hold back all his dark minions."

You know, actually, that works. But that's not what I had in mind. This non-quote occurs much earlier in the story, before the future king set out for the southern kingdom.

Boromir in the council of Elrond
"Beleive not that in the land of Gondor the blood of Numenor is spent, nor all its pride and dignity forgotten. By our valour the wild folk of the East are still restrained, and the terror of Morgul kept at bay; and thus alone are peace and freedom maintained in the lands behind us, bulwark of the West. But if the passages of the river should be won, what then? The walls of Gondor are strong, but they do not hold back all his dark minions."

You're much, MUCH closer, but it's not Boromir speaking, it's another man.

Maybe Aragorn at the Council of Elrond when he talks about the Dunedain? I'm too lazy to post his entire speech, but you must know which one I mean.

Yes, that's the one! It is a pretty long speech, sort of a rebuttal to Boromir's statement that Gondor seems to stand alone against the Enemy.

Evisse has it!

'Tell me, he said,'is there any hope? For Frodo, I mean; or at least mostly for Frodo.
'There never was much hope,' he answered. 'Just a fool's hope, as I've been told. It is in him that all our hope lies, it seems, and if that is gone, there'll be none for us.'

Mind giving 'original' quote one you posed is supposed to add to?

Besides, what with you being the winner and all, I suppose it is again your turn to ask away

Of course I don't mind, totally forgot about this, seeing as I used to have a curse of killing threads!



Pippin (The Uruk-Hai chapter):
He groped with his two tied hands at his throat, and unclasped the brooch of his cloak. ....he let it fall. "There I suppose it will lie until the end of time," he thought, "...they've probably all gone with Frodo. Even if they come, it will probably be night and won't see it. But I do hope they come and claim us."

It could fit but that's not what I'm looking for.
Hint: this fake quote has been turned around from the real quote.
