  • Quotes

    • Irime: Ethelemme truanai andasse. Efiritana tol-muura e wiisha mella. Stories are like journeys. The most difficult step always seems to be the first. It is often in the darkest times, when our strength and will are weakest, that we are challenged to set out on an unfamiliar path. So it was for young Finn. "Finn the Silent," as he was known. A riddle to all who knew him and to himself as well. His journey required him to negotiate strange currencies. And to face dangers he could barely have imagined. And though his courage was often tested, he found strength to face his fears. For never had he traveled so far, even in the company of those far older and wiser than himself. And on this most important journey he was alone. His path leading him toward a distant...a distant and fabled realm. Wherein dwelt a man of uncommon power and compassion. A grand wizard named Eldgar.

    • Irime: Every story has a beginning, but no story truly has an end. Only a new beginning.

    • (reviewing Thaddeus' drawing)
      Bruce: Whoa, are you saying this freaky little dude with the pointy ears is me?
      Johnny: Very lifelike, Thad. Very lifelike.
      Bruce: Uh-uh, no. I am no elf.
      Johnny: You know, Tolkien's elves are all immortal.
      Bruce: Immortal, huh?
      Johnny: Uh-huh.
      Bruce: Well, I ain't ever seen no black elf before.
