The Silmarillion aesthetic |
Finrod
and
Amarië

According to the Quenta Silmarillion, Amarië did not follow Finrod into exile. The Grey Annals add to this that she wasn’t permitted to follow
him. In the Shibboleth of Fëanor we read that ‘Finrod left his wife in Valinor and had no children
in exile’. No name is given here, but it seems likely that this refers
to to Amarië. 
After his death
Finrod went to the Halls of Mandos, ‘but it is said that released soon
from Mandos, he went to Valinor and there dwells with Amarië (Grey
Annals).

Tolkien quotes to inspire wanderlust

“He found himself wondering at times, especially in the autumn, about the wild lands, and strange visions of mountains that he had never seen came into his dreams.”

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And whither then? I cannot say.

Tolkien quotes to inspire wanderlust

“Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

(The Hobbit, Chap. 1: An Unexpected Party)

“But Caranthir, who loved not the sons of Fina…

“But Caranthir, who loved not the sons of Finarfin, and was the harshest of the brothers and the most quick to anger, cried aloud: ‘Yea more! Let not the sons of Finarfin run hither and thither with their tales to this Dark Elf in his caves! Who made them our spokesmen to deal with him? And though they be come indeed to Beleriand, let them not so swiftly forget that their father is a lord of the Noldor, though their mother be of other kin.’ Then Angrod was wrathful and went forth from the council.”
