LOTR (Fellowship of the Ring): Opening Monologue
Galadriel: (speaking partly in Elvish)

I amar prestar aen.

The world is changed.

Han matho ne nen.

I feel it in the water.

Han mathon ned cae.

I feel it in the earth.

A han noston ned gwilith.

I smell it in the air.

Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.

It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf-Lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else desire power. For within these rings was bound the strength and the will to govern each race. But they were all of them deceived, for another ring was made. Deep in the land of Mordor, in the Fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged a master ring, and into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life.

One ring to rule them all.

One by one, the free lands of Middle-Earth fell to the power of the Ring, but there were some who resisted. A last alliance of men and elves marched against the armies of Mordor, and on the very slopes of Mount Doom, they fought for the freedom of Middle-Earth. Victory was near, but the power of the ring could not be undone. It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Isildur, son of the king, took up his father’s sword.

Sauron, enemy of the free peoples of Middle-Earth, was defeated. The Ring passed to Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy evil forever, but the hearts of men are easily corrupted. And the ring of power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur, to his death.

And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge. Until, when chance came, it ensnared another bearer.

It came to the creature Gollum, who took it deep into the tunnels of the Misty Mountains. And there it consumed him. The ring gave to Gollum unnatural long life. For five hundred years it poisoned his mind, and in the gloom of Gollum’s cave, it waited. Darkness crept back into the forests of the world. Rumor grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear, and the Ring of Power perceived its time had come. It abandoned Gollum, but then something happened that the Ring did not intend. It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable: a hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, of the Shire.

For the time will soon come when hobbits will shape the fortunes of all.

May it be an evening star 
Shines down upon you 
May it be when darkness falls 
Your heart will be true 
You walk a lonely road 
Oh, how far you are from home 
Mornië utúlië (Darkness has come) 
Believe and you will find your way 
Mornië alantië (Darkness has fallen) 
A promise lives within you now 

May it be the shadows call 
Will fly away 
May it be your journey on 
To light the day 
When the night is overcome 
You may rise to find the sun 
Mornië utúlië (Darkness has come) 
Believe and you will find your way 
Mornië alantië (Darkness has fallen) 
A promise lives within you now 

A promise lives within you now

LOTR (Return of the King): Aragorn's speech at the black gate

Sons of Gondor! Of Rohan! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand! Men of the West!

There will come a time when all hopes extinguish right in front of our eyes. But, do not be afraid for there is always hope. I have been to the deepest abyss and back. You too will face your great challenge one day. Take heart, you will never be alone. I will always stand watch over you.

I may not be your strength, for that strength comes from within. But, I do stand true to your quest.

I have always been beaten down and fallen. But, I never blame the one that fell me. I thank him for being wise in falling me. For every fall, I grew stronger with new grown muscles and I see yonder.

Some have remarked that I have developed an Ah-Q's mentality. I have turned masochistic. Why not? If that helps me to advance my armies up north and expand my territories.

Let's enjoy the show ...
