Here are my favorite quotes from Lord of the Rings.


Frodo: I wish none of this had happen.

Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.





Bilbo Reflects:

I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.

I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall ever see.

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.

I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.
But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door.

:) Yes these are great truths, which because they come in the form enetainment,  are missed and not given the thought they deserve.  Great philosphers of history, did not just sit around and think, they bumped in to the univeral inteligence, while living a doing their day to day work.
I'm all set to get tickets, as soon as the go one sell, for opening day of the next one. Yes I'm taking the grandkids to that one too.

Hi Flower of the West!

Yes, those are such true words. I am thinking on getting the 3 books this christmas and actually reading the LOTR, instead of the movie.

BTW, call me Paul! Mr. MacArthur does not fit me very well.... :)D

It is true, while everyone reads books, i am delving into XML, C++, Visual Basic, Unix, learning about data-buses, bits, bytes, cmos, etc.

Plus with raising 4 kids with the majority of them born in my 20's I have tended to reading things such as Cat in the Hat, Things that go bump in the night, Golden Books, Honey Bear....lol  

I am just graduating to more advanced readings!  ::lol

Mac I read "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" and all of those sorts of books while I was in Jr. High - I was the considered the class "nerd" back then, just like kids who were into computers were considered "freaks" and "geeks."

There wasnt anything wrong with us - we were just way ahead of our time! Now that I am grown, I watch all of the books we read back then come to life on the movie screen, and it is so interesting to see what can be done when theatrical wisdom meets computer wizardry!

Don't throw away your Cat In The Hat or Green Eggs and Ham, just put them up on the shelf to read to the Grandbabies when they visit.

To paraphrase:

"Would you read it on a train, would you read it in the rain?

Would you read it here or there?

Would you read it anywhere?

You will like Bilbo Baggins you will see.

The Hobbit is the best book to me!"

Another one which is very true, Sam talking to Frodo on the stairs of Cirith Ungol:

"The brave things in the old tales and songs, Mr. Frodo: adventures I used to call them. I used to think they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull, so to say. But thats not the way with the tales that really mattered , or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them - their paths have been laid that way, as you put it. But I expect, they had lots of chances - as we did - of turning back, only they didnīt."

I think my favorite "quote" is actually an action one of the trees took, by putting it's head in the water to put out the fire burnin' on it. lol
Brought a bit of a chuckle for MANY of us in the theater...:D

Must be one of the Ents I guess. How else should the poor creature get out of its trouble? But I think they d been realized absolutely great in film (the Ents I mean). Still cant wait till it gets to Skye, in the meantime had a look at website thetwotowers.net or something like that, fantastic and verra enlightening just disappointed about merchandise stuff. :D ::smilingcolors  (d)

I liked the part when the Tree Elf calls the two hobbits "shire- lings" Since our SCA groups are organized into "shires" and I am now honored to be the Minister of Children for my particular shire, I call our children within my group "shire-lings" which always brings a giggle!

One of my favorite parts in The Two Towers is actually not in the book. The whole part when Gollum is arguing with himself is really funny. I also love the part when Sam is wishing for potatoes and Gollum says, "What's 'taters, precious, what's 'taters?"
