We love quotes. Aliaself has tons of them as she has the entire written works of Tolkien
committed to memory. I love 'sig' lines. Do they have anything to do with this archive?
No, but what the heck, they are fun to collect. We will try and specify the difference
between movie quotes and books quotes but consider anything with thee and thou
as books quotes<g>. It is also likely that we will have more then our usual cast of
characters quoting things here. If you have a favourite quote send it along, we can
never have too many.

Aragorn | Legolas | Boromir | Elrond | Others


ARAGORN : Yeah like didn't you all know I would start with him?
One of the perks of being the web page designer .

'The hour is come at last. Now I go to Pelargir upon Anduin, and ye shall
come after me. And when all this land is clean of the servants of Sauron,
I will hold the oath fulfilled, and ye shall have peace and depart for ever.

For I am Elessar, Isildur's heir of Gondor.' Book- ROTK
'Gondor! Gondor, between the Mountains and the Sea! ---West Wind blew
there; the light upon the Silver Tree ---Fell like bright rain in gardens of the
Kings of old. ---O Gondor, Gondor! Shall Men behold the Silver Tree,--Or West
Wind blow again between the Mountians and the sea? --Aragorn (TTT)

'Let me think!' said Aragorn. 'And now may I make a right choice, and change
the evil fate of this unhappy day!' --Aragorn (TTT)

'Yes,' said Aragorn, 'we shall all need the endurance of Dwarves. But come!
With hope or without hope we will follow the trail of our enemies. And woe
to them, if we prove the swifter! We will make such a chase as shall be
accounted a marvel among the Three Kindreds: Elves, Dwarves, and Men.
Forth the Three Hunters!' ---Aragorn (TTT)




'My heart bids me go on,' said Legolas. 'But we must hold together.
I will follow your council.' --Legolas (TT)




"Then let us start as soon as it is light tomorrow, if we can. The wolf that
one hears is worse than the orc that one fears." Book FOTR




`He shall be found,' he said. `Then you two shall go into a corner and finish
your task, and we will hear it and judge it before we end our merrymaking.'
-Elrond to Bilbo -FOTR

`That is the purpose for which you are called hither. Called, I say. though
I have not called you to me, strangers from distant lands. You have come
and are here met, in this very nick of time, by chance as it may seem. Yet
it is not so. Believe rather that it is so ordered that we, who sit here, and
none others, must now find counsel for the peril of the world.
-Elrond to the council (FOTR)

Thereupon Elrond paused a while and sighed. `I remember well the splendour
of their banners,' he said. `It recalled to me the glory of the Elder Days and the
hosts of Beleriand, so many great princes and captains were assembled. And
yet not so many, nor so fair, as when Thangorodrim was broken, and the
Elves deemed that evil was ended for ever, and it was not so.'
-Elrond to the council (FOTR)




Gil-Galad was an Elven-king.
Of him the harpers sadly sing:
the last whose realm was fair and free
between the Mountains and the Sea.

His sword was long, his lance was keen,
his shining helm afar was seen;
the countless stars of heaven's field
were mirrored in his silver shield.

But long ago he rode away,
and where he dwelleth none can say;
for into darkness fell his star
in Mordor where the shadows are.

-- The Fall of Gil-Galad

Legolas Greenleaf long under tree
In joy thou hast lived. Beware of the Sea!
If thou hearest the cry of the gull on the shore,
They heart shall then rest in the forest no more.
~Book - TTT Gandalf from Galadriel

'And it is also said,' answered Frodo: 'Go not to the Elves for
counsel, for they will say both no and yes.' ~Frodo FOTR

'Boromir, O Boromir!' he cried. 'What did she say to you, the Lady
that dies not? What did she see? What woke in your heart then?
Why went you ever to Laurelindorenan, and came not by your own
road, upon the horses of Rohan riding home in the morning?'
- Faramir (TTT)

`Well, my dear fellow,' said Bilbo, `now you've heard the news, can't
you spare me a moment? I want your help in something urgent. Elrond
says this song of mine is to be finished before the end of the evening,
and I am stuck. Let's go off into a corner and polish it up!
-Bilbo to Aragron (FOTR)

'What do you fear, lady?' he asked ----'A cage,' she said. 'To stay
behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing
great deeds is gone byone recall or desire.' (Eowyn)
