QUOTE OF THE WEEK

QUOTE OF THE WEEK » “Then Huor spoke and said: ‘Yet if [Gondolin] stands but a little while, then out of your house shall come the hope of Elves and Men. 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!’” – Silmarillion Ch 20
