Middle Earth Proverbs and Traditional Sayings

first posted by Lothiriel Adaneth on www.theonering.net

Greenwood Hobbit brought the subject up with the saying - "he can see through a brick wall in time" - a reference to Barliman by Gandalf (FOTR - Many Meetings).

Another person mentioned "glory and trumpets" from Sam. (same chapter)

Some of my favorites:

"Faithful heart may have forward tongue" - Theoden (TTT, King of Golden Hall)

"Oft evil will shall evil mar" Theoden (TTT, The Palantir)

"Our Enemy's devices oft serve us in his despite" Eomer (ROTK, Ride of Rohirrim)

"Twice blessed is help unlooked for" Eomer (ROTK, Battle of P. Fields)

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us" Gandalf (FOTR, Shadow of the Past)

Well - there's a million more. What are your favorites?

Greenwood Hobbit: On parsimony, from 'A Long-Expected Party' - 'There's some not far away that wouldn't offer a pint of beer to a friend, if they lived in a hole with golden walls.' Gaffer

Kimi adds: "out of the frying pan, into the fire" (The Hobbit)

There are several in LOTR - it's obviously the source of many ancient proverbs :-) E.g. "It's an ill wind as blows nobody no good". And "Better late than never". Some are slightly unfamiliar versions, such as "All's well as ends Better".

Dernwyn: a personal favorite: Celeborn, from "Farewell to Lórien":

"But do not despise the lore that has come down from distant years; for oft it may chance that old wives keep in memory word of things that once were needful for the wise to know."

whereismycoffee: "May the hair on your toes never fall off."
"Never laugh at live dragons."

Elvendala: 'Dont let your heads get too big for your hats!'

Laureanna: "Where will wants not, a way opens." said by Dernhelm, p 787 ROTK

"Need brooks no delay, yet late is better than never." said by Eomer, p 817 ROTK

Interweaving social trends form a powerful net in which we are all trapped.
Your squad is actually pretty tough, so just
provide some flamethrower support and help them break through
the line. Though a bit expensive, it is however a good investment.
