Gimli: You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied.

Galadriel: I’m sure I don’t know what you mean. You forget yourself.

Bilbo: I want to see mountains again, Gandalf – mountains; and then find somewhere where I can rest.

Gandalf: Look, you’re old, rich, single, and weird. If seeing mountains is really the last thing you need to do before you die, I’m thankful for it. 

Hey guys if your significant other ever asks you why you chose to be with them, the correct response is not to reply with Gandalf’s line to Frodo, “Such questions cannot be answered. You may be sure that it was not for any merit that others do not possess: not for power or wisdom, at any rate. But you have been chosen, and you must therefore use such strength and heart and wits as you have.”

Real names tell you the story of the things they belong to

Wait does the Lord of the Rings…belong to Sauron?

Men being labeled as “doomed to die” in the ring poem is funny because the Doom of Mandos literally says “yet slain ye may be, and slain ye shall be” to the elves. 

You can tell that I’m a real Lord of the Rings expert because my favorite character is the unnamed sentient fox that appears for three lines in chapter 3 of the fellowship of the ring. 

Aragorn says “Dawn is ever the hope of men” which is a nice quote but honestly knowing the Valar, the sun and moon could go away at any time and they’d take ages to fix it which means I wouldn’t exactly count on dawn. 

Gimli: Tell me, Legolas, why did I come on this Quest? Little did I know where the chief peril lay! Truly Elrond spoke, saying that we could not foresee what we might meet upon our road. Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back. But I would have never come, had I known the danger of light and joy.

Legolas: smh you are such a drama queen. She’s pretty, okay? Calm down a bit.

Aragorn: I am Aragorn son of Arathorn; and if by life or death I can save you, I will. 

Frodo: wait by my death or your death?

Aragorn: My death. 

Frodo: oh that’s okay then. I mean, thanks. 

The entire war of the ring wasn’t originally part of the history of middle earth. The valar had to improvise that after Elrond didn’t just kill Isildur and destroy the ring. He was supposed to do that.
