Poem & Prose

If you follow me on Twitter, you already know what this page is all about. Here you can read famous quotations from songs, books, movies…anything from anywhere, (but must be famous) translated by me or by anyone who wants to contribute (credits will be properly given) in Quenya! I guess that’s the best & quickest way to practice Quenya grammar and syntax in order to develop your ‘elvish’ skills.

If you want to help building this page, you can leave a reply asking for a specific translation. I just need the sentence (of course) and the source. You can also leave a reply with your own translated sentence with the same info if you want it to be published here.

(TIP: Click on the letters below to easy browse through the Quenya quotes library. You can also click on the Tengwar writing to listen to its pronunciation!)

Enjoy!

    Hi!
    I can’t find a fool proof translation to that song so I’m coming to you!
    I’d love to have

    “Mornie utúlië, (darkness has come)
    Believe and you will find your way.
    Mornie alantië, (darkness has fallen)
    A promise lives within you now.”

    from “May it be” by Enya translated in Quenya.
    Thanks a million!
    PS: I know part of it is in Queya, but I left it in nonetheless, everything so that it comes out perfect!

    I would be forever greatful if you could translate this quote by Thorin to Tengwar italics! “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world”

  4. Kim

    i was wondering if you could translate “not all those who wander are lost” ?
