    i like nice quotes

    post the ones you find good here

    "All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king."

    one of my favourites

    "I wish it need not have happened in my time,"

    "So do I, and 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 us."

    "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."

    "Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

    "I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are an evil."

    "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udun. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass."

    "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"

    "The treacherous are ever distrustful."

    At that sound the bent shape of the king sprang suddenly erect. Tall and proud he seemed again; and rising in his stirrups he cried in a loud voice, more clear than any there had ever heard a mortal man achieve before:

    Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden!
    Fell deeds awake: fire and slaughter!
    spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,
    a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
    Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!

    With that he seized a great horn from Guthláf his banner-bearer, and he blew such a blast upon it that it burst asunder. And straightaway all the horns in the host were lifted up in music, and the blowing of the horns of Rohan in that hour was like a storm upon the plain and a thunder in the mountains.

    Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!

    Re: Book quotes

    Nice, all Tolkien.
    "No, this isn't what i would choose for him. This isn't what I would choose for myself. Would that he had been born in better times! Would that he had been born on a marriage bed, and my brother still upon the throne! But I was not given that situation, and nor was he. And so he serves, as I do. The king is the sacrifice of the people. And so is his nephew. That was carnage up there today. I know not how this boy...this man survived it. By doing whatever he had to I suppose. So what can I do, man? What can I do? I need him. I need him for this secret, ugly battling, for he is the only one trained and equipped to do it. Whatever Fitz must do, whatever skills he must call upon,then let him use. Because that is what we are about now. Survival. Because -"
    "They are my people." I had not realized I had spoken until they both swung to stare at me. "A long time ago, an old man told me that I would someday understand something. He said that the Six Duchies people were my people, and that it was in my blood to care about them, to feel their hurts as my own. He was right. They killed my child today. And my smith, and two other men. And I must have thier blood in return, I must drive them from my coast. It is as simple now as eating or breathing. It is a thing I must do."
    Their eyes met over my head.
    "Blood will tell" Verity observed quietly. But there was a fierceness in his voice, and a pride that stilled the trembling of my body. I had done the right thing today. Ugly, demeaning work, but it was mine, and I had done it well. For my people.

    That's a poem, not a quote. Not to mention all these are from LotR. By the way you're spamming your own thread. Is there a reason to keep posting 10 times in a row while you have the edit button? No there isn't so if you're going to do that, keep it in one post please.

    "Art is long, time short." - Faust by Goethe

    "All that philosophy can teach,
    The lore of jurist and of leech,
    I've mastered, ah! and sweated through
    Theology's dead deserts, too,
    Yete here, poor fool! for all my lore,
    I stand no wiser than before." - Faust by Goethe

    ''Two souls, alas! reside within my breast;
    And each withdraws from and repels its brother.
    One with tenacious organs holds in love
    And clinging lust the world in its embraces;
    The other strongly sweeps this dust above
    Into the high ancestral spaces.'' - Faust by Goethe

    "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." - (not from a book per se) Leo Tolstoy

    ''A fair request should be followed by the deed in silence.'' - Divine Comedy by Dante

    ''If the present world go astray, the cause is in you, in you it is to be sought.'' - Divine Comedy by Dante

    ''There is no greater sorrow, than to be mindful of the happy time in misery.'' - Divine Comedy by Dante

    ''Oh for shame, how the mortals put the blame on us gods, for they say evils come from us, but it is they, rather, who by their own recklessness win sorrow beyond what is given'' - Odyssey by Homer

    ''Faithless is he who leaves when the road darkens.'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    ''Let him not vow to walk in the dark, who has not seen the darkness fall'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    ''There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    ''It is the job that is never started that takes longest to finish.'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    ''I do not love the bright sword for it's sharpness, nor the arrow for it's swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    ''The wide world is all about you. You can fence yourselves in, but you cannot forever fence it out.'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    ''Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.'' - LoTR by JRR Tolkien

    "Hail Eärendil, of mariners most renowned, the looked for that cometh at unawares, the longed for that cometh beyond hope! Hail Eärendil, bearer of the light before the Sun and Moon! Splendour of the Children of Earth, star in the darkness, jewel in the sunset, radiant in the morning!" - The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien

    "Yet if it stands but a little while, then out of your house shall come the hope of Elves and Men. This I say to you, lord, with the eyes of death: though we part here forever, and I shall not look on your white walls again, from you and from me a new star shall arise. Farewell!" - The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien

    ''Last of all Hurin stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered, and each time that he slew Hurin cried 'Aure entuluva! Day shall come again!' Seventy times he uttered that cry; but they took him at last alive...'' - The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien

    ''For a foe will seek to bind with words where force will not avail.'' - The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien

    ''For he who sews lies shall not want of a harvest, and shall wait in leisure while others reap the bounty in his stead.'' - The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien

    ''It is more blessed to give than to receive.'' - The Bible

    This are only some of my favorite parts of only some of my favorite books (more or less).

    I'm sorry to go off-topic, and excuse me for asking but why can't a poem be quoted? If he quotes a poem, isn't the poem automatically a quote?

    Re: Book quotes

    Letters from the Earth: The uncensored Writings By Mark Twain:

    I expect that to take your breath away. You are aware--for I have already told you in an earlier letter-- that among human beings jealousy rank distinctly as a weakness; a trade-mark of small minds; a property of all small minds yet a property which even the smallest is ashamed of; and when accused of its posssession will lyingly deny it and resent the accusation as an insult.

    Jealousy. Do not forget it, keep it in mind. It is the key . With it you will come to partly to understand God as we go along.; without it nobody can understand him. As I have said, he has openly help up this reasonous key himself, for all to see. He says, naievely outspokenly, and without suggestion of embarrassment:"I the Lord thy God am a jealous God."

    You see, its is the only anohter way of saying,"I the Lord thy God am a small God, and fretful about small things."

    He was guving a warning: he could not bear the thought of any other God getting some of the Sunday compliments of this comical little human race--- he wanted all of them for himself. He valued them. To him they were riches; just as tin money is to Zulu.

    But wait --- I'm not fair; I am misrepresenting him; prejudice is beguiling me into saying what is not true. He did not say he wanted all the adularions; he said nothing about not being willing to share them with his fellow gods; what he said was, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."

    It is a quire diffrent thing, and puts him in a much better light-- I confess it. There was an abundance of gods, the woods were full of them, as the saying is, and all he demanded was that he should be ranked as high as the others--- not above any of them, but not below any of them.
