AGH! I know it but I don't know the whole thing and I don't know what book it's in.

The last part is "Did you think that thy name was given only in idle fancy?"

"---/ hav-/ ---n/ -nt-/, -/ -in-/, -nt-/ --t/ --/ -an---n/ -----t/, -hich/ in/ ----/ t-n---/ ---/ ca--/ th-/ -nt----/. Did/ you/ think/ that/ thy/ name/ was/ given/ only/ in/ idle/ fancy ?"

You're KILLING me

Oh, I just realized I didn't give a guess.

How about O?

I know the second word is HAVE, but the fourth word can be ENTS or ONTO, or maybe something else. So let's clear that up.

I'm leaning strongly towards Lord of the Rings.

You have...something...maybe about Ents? Was it Gandalf that said this?

(O was a very good choice! I was wondering why you didn't ask for more vowels...)

Oohh O was a good one!

"You/ have/ seen/ Ents/, O/ -in-/, Ents/ out/ of/ Fangorn/ Forest/, which/ in/ your/ tongue/ you/ call/ the/ Entmoot/. Did/ you/ think/ that/ thy/ name/ was/ given/ only/ in/ idle/ fancy ?"

Is the last bit "king"?

Thumbs up

Now you nearly got it!
the sixth word is indeed "King"
posted by Blind Guardian:
Quote:
And in that first set of commas there is one lone letter. It's not an a or an I. I don't remember Tolkien using O by itself without an apostrophe. Hmm.

and yes, it was Gandalf who said that to Theoden

There are two mistakes though: it's Entwood, not Entmoot! And of course not "thy" name, but "the name"

Do you want me to continue or should we wait a bit and see if Morsul joins us again?

"----, --- ---- -- -o- -o--, --o- ----- -o ----. ---- -- --- ---, --- ---- -- --- ----. --- -- ---- -o- --- -o-- --- ------ -o o-- ----o--. ---- ----- -- -o ---- --?"

I missed a space at the end of the first sentence. It's corrected now.

Ring

Wait, I think I found it! The last sentence seems to be "What shall we do with it?"
and that leads me to the Council of Elrond:

"Well, the Tale is now told, from first to last. Here we all are, and here is the Ring. But we have not yet come any nearer to our purpose. What shall we do with it?"
