"Whatever happens, it can't be worse than a season of opera!!!! I don't mind where I'm going so long as there are no fat men pretending to be thin boys, and no huge long songs which everyone says are so beautiful just because they don't understand what the hell they're actually about!!!! Ah—Ah-argh..." Mr. Salzella
"Incidentally, another thing I can't stand about opera are the plots. They make no sense!! And no one ever says so!!! And the quality of the acting? It's nonexistent!! Everyone stands around watching the person who's singing. Ye gods, it's going to be a relief to put that behind... ah... argh..." Salzella again.
"There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage, and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But sad or merry, I must leave it now. Farewell!" Thorin Oakenshield
"It will be long ere I am seen among the Noldor again; and it may be that we shall not meet a second time in death or life, for the fates of our kindreds are apart. Farewell!" Finrod Felagund, to Beren
"Now is the Quest achieved, and my doom full-wrought." Beren. He got better, temporarily.
"This I say to you, lord, with the eyes of death: Though we part here for ever, and I shall not look on your white walls again, from you and from me a new star shall arise. Farewell!" Huor
"Let him be called Tuor, for that name his father chose, ere war came between us. And I beg of you to foster him, and to keep him hidden in your care, for I forbode that great good, for Elves and Men, shall come from him. But I must go in search of Huor, my lord." Rian.
"My hurts are too deep even for your healing" Androg
"Now if you love me, leave me! Haste you to Nargothrond, and save Finduilas. And this last I say to you: she alone stands between you and your doom. If you fail her, it shall not fail to find you. Farewell!" Gwindor
"Mormegil. Tell the Mormegil that Finduilas is here." Finduilas
"Hail, Niënor, daughter of Húrin. We meet again ere the end. I give thee joy that thou hast found thy brother at last. And now thou shalt know him: a stabber in the dark, treacherous to foes, faithless to friends, and a curse unto his kind, Túrin son of Húrin! But the worst of all his deeds thou shalt feel in thyself." Glaurung the dragon, to Niënor, who he had made amnesiac, as he gives her her memory back.
"A Túrin Turambar turun ambartanen: master of doom by doom mastered! O happy to be dead!" Niënor, after getting her memory back and realizing she'd married her brother.
"Keep your hate! It is as feeble as all your counsels. But for me the Orcs would have come and hung you as a scarecrow in your garden. Take the name skulker to yourself!" Dorlas
"All that has chanced is a long tale to tell, and I am weary of you. But you slander me, son of Húrin. Did Glaurung slander you? If you slay me, then all shall see that he did not. Yet I do not fear to die, for then I will go to seek Níniel whom I loved, and perhaps I may find her again beyond the sea." Brandir
"Hail Gurthang! No lord or loyalty dost thou know, save the hand that wieldeth thee. From no blood wilt thou shrink. Wilt thou therefore take Túrin Turambar, wilt thou slay me swiftly?" Túrin, before falling on his sword, Gurthang.
"If you know, tell me! How did she find him?" Morwen

"Tell you what, kittypet. We're just passing through...but while I'm here, you can be my personal servant. Go fetch me some water. Now." One of Brokenstar's followers.
