"who is tom Bombadil?"
asked by: Anonymous

Well, nobody knows who he is for sure.

There are lots and lots of speculations. Some say he’s Eru himself or one of the Valar, others that he’s Sauron or some other powerful and foul creature. Then of course, he could just be Tom Bombadil. 
He really is a mysterious character though. He seems to be on Middle-earth since its creation (x) and the Ring has no powers over him. 

But maybe that wasn’t even your question. ^^

To put it simply, Tom Bombadil is an elderly, vivid, cheerful man who lives in the Old Forest with his mysterious elvish-seeming ‘River Daughter’ wife Goldberry. He’s the master of the forest and the Barrow-downs and doesn’t want to have anything to do with what lies outside of this area. 

He appears in the chapters ‘The Old Forest’, ‘In the House of Tom Bombadil’ and ‘Fog on the Barrow-downs’ in The Fellowship of the Ring and helps Frodo and the other three hobbits on the beginning of their journey.

You can find the quotes from/about him so far here and read more about him here.

"Hey, awesome blog, but just wanted to send in one quick correction, for your post yesterday at 3:18pm, I'm pretty sure the term Argonath refers only to the two massive stone statues where the Anduin crosses into the territory of Gondor. The statue in the quote you posted, as well as the one in the film picture, was from the statue at the Cross-roads in Ithilien."

You are absolutely right.

My only excuse for the mistake is my hurry in finishing the quotes for the queue I used, when I was traveling.
I was looking for the correct name of the statue and snatched up the words ‘great stone Kings of Argonath’ a few lines above. I even thought: ‘Yay, I learned something new!’ 

Of course that sentence was only describing a resemblance to the stone Kings of Argonath. 

I apologise and thank you for pointing it out!

(It’s now ‘About the Statue at the Cross-Roads’ ;))

"hey, heeyy, just continue quoting, please, and, I would like to find more words of the Elves? And Aragorn? and some quotes about nature... Here, take this: <3"
asked by: Anonymous

Hello there! I will. I’ll continue until there is hardly anything to quote anymore. But with the magnitude the Professor left us, that will not be any time soon. :) Though there will of course be times I won’t be able to be as active. 

The next days, I’ll post quotes of Elves, Aragorn and nature. ;)

And this is for you: <3 :)
