Samwise the Stouthearted [In reply to] Can't Post

Quoting his dear old Gaffer. Somewhere around or near the Mirror of Gladriel.

"One may go quickly, but a company can go far." / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.

Re: Glorfindel's horse [In reply to] Can't Post

If you hear a horse with bells on it, you know it's Good and not Evil.

Or, re: Gollum, Wargs, and Black Riders: if something is sniffing its way toward you, it's not a friend but a foe.

"All's well that ends better!"


To which I will add, "Short cuts make long delays." -Pippin

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mmak. But we got him
