What about second breakfast?

This is a Middle Earth Appreciation blog, where one can mostly find images, gifsets, and news concerning the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films.

I'll also probably blog a bit about LOTRO, as I've started playing!
I'm Eldanien. I really, really like that name.

 I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Lay down 
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey’s end

Suddenly another voice spoke, low and melodious, its very sound an enchantment. Those who listened unwarily to that voice could seldom report the words that they heard; and if they did, they wondered, for little power remained in them. Mostly they remembered only that it was a delight to hear the voice speaking, all that it said seemed wise and reasonable, and desire awoke in them by swift agreement to seem wise themselves.

we shall fall in battle valiantly.  yet there is still hope that they will not fail.

war must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but i do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory.  i love only that which they defend: the city of the men of númenor; and i would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom.

Had the aim of men been true that day, much would have been different.

Lord of the Rings RereadStrider

There was a long silence. At last Frodo spoke with hesitation. “I believed that you were a friend before the letter came,” he said, “or at least I wished to. You have frightened me several times tonight, but never in the way that servants of the Enemy would, or so I imagine. I think one of his spies would-well, seem fairer and feel fouler, if you understand.”

"I see," laughed Strider. "I look foul and feel fair. Is that it? All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost."
