=== Legolas Quote Re: Prince Imrahil ===
 
 
The following is one of my favorites, and I hope we can begin by anointing it with this high honor:
 
 
{{quote|That is a fair lord and a great captain of men. If [[Gondor]] has such men still in these days of fading, great must have been its glory in the days of its rising.|[[Legolas of Mirkwood|Legolas]] speaking of [[Imrahil|Prince Imrahil]], ''[[The Return of the King]]'', [[The Last Debate]]}}
 
 
:'''Agree'''. Wonderful quote. -- [[User:Ederchil|Ederchil]] 12:30, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
 
 
:'''Agree'''. Beautiful words. :) ~~ [[User:Þelma|Þelma]] 13:30, 4 August 2008 (EDT)
 
 
:'''Agree'''. Truly beautiful words. -- [[User:Eldarion Telcontar|Eldarion Telcontar]] 14:11, 12 August 2008 (EDT)
 
 
:'''Agree'''. Thought-provoking. -- Ingwe
 
 
:'''Agree'''. Looks good to me, updating the [[Main Page]] right now.-- Hyarion
 
 
===Elrond-Gimli exchange===
 
{{quote|'Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens,' said [[Gimli]].<br>'Maybe,' said [[Elrond]], 'but let him not vow to walk in the dark, who has not seen the nightfall.'|''[[The Fellowship of the Ring]]'', [[The Ring Goes South]]}}
 
 
:'''Agree'''. Though technically, I'd agree with any quote nom. What happened to the system? Was it to be weekly or monthly? -- {{User:Ederchil/sig}}
 
 
::Very true, anything for a change. Perhaps an automated system that selected a quote from a database would be better, I seem to recall seeing that discussed somewhere a while ago. '''Agree'''. --[[User:Aule the Smith|Aule the Smith]] 21:48, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
 
 
:::'''Agree'''. Quite proverbial. -Ingwe
 
 
::::'''Agree''' - Very interesting quotation.--{{User:KingAragorn/sig}} 17:27, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
 
 
'''Agree''' - It definetely makes you think (obviously it's Elrond)--Breragor
 
 
'''Agree''' Ok, so should we put to this quote up? The current one was here the last time I've visited TG, which was a long time ago, so this is not good. :) I think we all agree the above one is a wonderful quote. ~~ [[User:Þelma|Þelma]] 00:47, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Featured Quote Nominations

There have never really been any standards for a Featured Quote, but let us begin. Following the general model of the Featured Article, let's specify a nomination followed by five affirmative votes; state either Agree or Disagree. The nominated quote should not exceed a single paragraph.

Tolkien's Own

"The Hobbits are just rustic English people, made small in size because it reflects the generally small reach of their imagination --not the small reach of their courage or latent power."
J.R.R. Tolkien
Disagree; though, yes, Tolkien wrote them all, the first and third are in-universe and should thus be attributed to their respective characters. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 07:56, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Undecided -I think if you add "- not the small reach of their courage or latent power" to the end, then I might agree.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:00, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
