Gandalf the White quotes

The wisdom that was borne out of the West was forsaken. Kings made tombs more splendid than the houses of the living, childless lords sat in high halls counting the long names of their ancestors more dear than the names of their sons, or in high cold towers asking questions of the stars. The line of Kings failed, the White Tree withered, and the rule of Gondor fell to lesser men.

The board is set. The pieces are moving.

Our enemy is ready, his full strength gathered. Not only orcs, but men as well. Legions of Haradrim from the south, mercenaries from the coast, all shall answer Mordor's call. This will be the end of Gondor as we know it. Here the hammer stroke will fall hardest. If the river is taken, if the garrison at Osgiliath fails, then the last defence of this city will be gone.

[on the Witch-king] Sauron has yet to reveal his most deadliest servant, the one who will lead Mordor's armies. The one they claim no living man can kill. The Witch-King of Angmar. [to Pippin] You've met him before. He stabbed Frodo on Weathertop. He is the Lord of the Nazgul, greatest of the Nine. Minas Morgul is his lair.

[after the death of Saruman] Send word to all our allies. And to every corner of Middle earth that still stands free. The Enemy moves to strike us. We need to know where he will attack next.
