Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by the Mayor of Laketown! Can't Post

AKA: What The Hobbit would be like if written by William Shakespeare.

Post your quotes and or observations in reply! A few examples.

Azog's final stage direction: Exit, pursued by Beorn.

Thorin recites King Lear's soliloquy during the Stone Giant incident.

Biblo & Co have a humorous conversation with the Laketown Gravedigger. "This skull, sir, was Thrain's skull, sir."
"Alas poor, Thrain, I knew him Fili."

And so forth. =)

Does it have to be Shakespeare? [In reply to] Can't Post

Cause I got some quotes, they're just not from Shakespeare.

The Necromancer is showing Gandalf and Radagast into Dol Guldor. Wargs howl in the distance. The Necromancer says, "Listen to them, children of the night! What sweet music they make!"

Bilbo looks at the Ring with contempt. "If only it were the Ring to become old and tarnished, and I to remain young forever! For that! For that I would give my soul!"

Both quoted from Dracula, and The Picture of Dorian Gray.

"The gold toward my hand? Come, let me claim thee;
"I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.
"Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible
"To feeling as to sight? or art thou but
"A dagger of the mind, a false creation,
"Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?
"I see thee yet, in form as palpable
"As this which now I wear."

"Exit, pursued by Beorn" made me crack up, Inferno. Smile

Thorin, of Bilbo: "Lord, what fools these hobbits be."

Bilbo in Rivendell: "O brave new world that has such peoples in it!"

Gandalf to Bilbo: "There are more things in Heaven and Middle-earth, Bilbo Baggins, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

Radagast at Dol Guldur: "Udun is empty and all the devils are here!"

Thorin, of Smaug: "If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you burn us, do we not crisp? If you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"

The goblins after the death of their king: "Cry havoc and let slip the wargs of war!"

[SPOILER warning for my last one. Highlight the text to read]: Bard shooting the Black Arrow at Smaug: "A hit! A very palpable hit!"

Henry V [In reply to] Can't Post

KILI. O that we now had here
But one ten thousand of those Dwarves in Erebor
That do no work to-day!

THORIN. What’s he that wishes so?
My nephew Kili? No, my fair nephew;
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our Mountain loss; and if to live,
The fewer Dwarves, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one Dwarf more.
By Durin, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if Elves our treasures share;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet homeland,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my neph, wish not an boar rider from the Hills.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one Dwarrow more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Khazad kin, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that Dwarf’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is the twenty-third of November.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
And rouse him at the name of Durin.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say “To-morrow is November Twenty-Third.”
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say “These wounds I had on Twenty-Third Day.”
Old whitebeards forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Thorin the Heir, Balin and Dwalin,
Fili and Kili, Oin and Gloin-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good Dwarf teach his son;
And Durin the Deathless shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And short-beards in the Blue Mountains now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their chin-wisps cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon this Twenty Third day.

A bag is like a hole that you can carry with you.

"Since I leave now all gold and silver,
and go where it is of little worth -

our wills and fates do so contrary run
That our devices still are overthrown;
Our thoughts are ours, their ends none of our own...

and I would take back my words and deeds at the Gate."

What's in a name? [In reply to] Can't Post

That which we call a burglar
By any other name would be a thief;
So Bilbo would, were he not burglar called,
Retain that quiet stealthiness which he owes
Without that title. Bilbo, leave thy hanky,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all ourselves.

Othello [In reply to] Can't Post

Tauriel to Thranduil:

That I did love the Dwarf to live with him,
Thy downright scorn and storm of insults
May trumpet to this Middle-earth: my heart's subdued
Even to the very quality of my doughty lord:
I saw Kili's visage in his mind,
And to his honour and his valiant parts
Did I my bow and arrows consecrate.
So that, dear Elven Lord, if I be left behind,
A moth of peace, and he go to the war,
The rites for which I love him are bereft me,
And I a heavy interim shall support
By his dear absence. To Erebor let me go with him!

That's one of my favourite quotes, and it fits the characters so perfectly! I could hear it in Gandalf's voice as I read it.

Gandalf: Is it secret, is it safe?
Frodo: Safely stowed!

Frodo: O that this too, too solid ring would melt, thaw and resolve itself without Mount Doom!

I officially love this thread and everyone participating in it. [In reply to] Can't Post

And I really mean that, I do.

"Exit, pursued by Beorn." - WIN.

Hmm, I am trying to think of something witty here, but this is all I can come up with (and I don't have my book with me so please bear with my faulty memory):

PELENNOR FIELDS. A Gondorian soldier is about to stab an orc.
ORC: To be, or not to be - that is the question,
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous Rohirrim,
Or to take arms against a sea of Numenoreans,
And by opposing, end them.
To die, to sleep, no more,
And by a sleep to say we end the heart-ache
And the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to -
'Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished!
To die, to sleep - to sleep, perchance to dream,
Aye, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what Elvish dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal hroa,
Must give us pause.
GONDORIAN: o.O

Crazy Laugh

Not very clever, but.... I like thinking of what the look on the Gondorian's face would be when an orc suddenly starts declaiming in perfect iambic pentameter...

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

Oh, my. [In reply to] Can't Post

Never thought I'd see Aragorn speaking Macbeth's words. Shocked Tongue

I always did wonder why Tolkien never named Aragorn and Arwen's daughters. Or even told us how many of them there were. I mean... we got all of Aragorn's ancestors in perfect unbroken line from Isildur, and we don't know the names of all his kids?? Apparently, the Restored Kingdom overcompensated for the declining Numenoreans' obsession with genealogy and didn't keep any records at all!
