Sam to Faramir, of Galadriel:

"perhaps you could call her perilous, because she's so strong in herself. You, you could dash yourself to pieces on her, like a ship on a rock, or drown yourself, like a hobbit in a river. But neither rock nor river would be to blame."


That was a tricksy thing, Nilpaurion, to cut out the 'but'. It was actually 'but perhaps...'

thank you :)

Well, maybe not intentionally tricksy, but it sure fooled me as I was looking for that sentence which began with 'Perhaps...'

Here's the next one:

"---/----/---/--------/---/-/----/---/----/----/---/----/-/---/-----------/. ---/-----/-------/--/----/--------/---/, ---/-----/---/-/-------/--/-------/----/------."
