Cute Quinn Story...|
(but aren't they all?) Quinn talks "like a little person" according to his "3rd grandma" Ntina's children. Tonight a neighbor crossed the street to join two of them on their way out for the evening. Little extrovert-boy jumps right in front of her exclaiming "Hi! My name's Quinn." He then went on to tell story of the "jingle bells" (christmas lights) all over the neighborhood and warn them that a car was coming (he picked up on this faster than any of the rest of us--he must have observed the sound of car doors opening and closing up the street and deduced that this meant a car would soon be started and on its way towards us).
Anyway, that's my boy.
Oh, LOTR quotes :
Gimli: "Slim chance of success, high probability of death...what are we waiting for?"
Sam: I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you
Witch King: You fool! No mortal man can kill me.
Eowyn: I am no man.
Gandalf: Lord Denethor is Boromir's father. It would be very unwise to bring him news of his beloved sons death. Best not to speak of it. And don't mention Frodo either, or the ring. Or Aragorn, say nothing of him. In fact, its best if you don't speak at all, Peregrin Took.
Gimli: This is something unheard of! An Elf go underground, where a Dwarf dare not! Oh, I'll never hear the end of it!
Pippin: So I imagine this is just a ceremonial position. I mean, they don't actually expect me to do any fighting. Do they?
Some of those are Tolkien's - Sam's quote, and Gimli's quote (slightly altered) at the door to the Paths of the Dead. And the dialog between the Witch King and Eowyn is similar. The first quote by Gimli was never in the books, nor the quote by Pippin. I'll have to look up the others to see how similar they are - in fact, I'm thinking of re-reading the entire series.
