    I’m sure this is asked quite often but how do you say “not all those who wander are lost” in Quenya, written in Tengwar?

    Also how would you say/write “all men must die” in Quenya?

  4. Could I get “Wait for it:” translated in Tengwar Annatar Italics? It’s said by Aaron Burr in Hamilton, the broadway musical. I made a donation through fast line but I didn’t write my confirmation number down, sorry.

    Hi, can you translate this?
    “Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is morning to be good on?”
    by Gandalf, from “The Hobbit”

    Have I asked in the right place?

  6. Krista F.

    Just wondering if you received my fast line request for “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me Phillipians 4:13.” Thank you!

  7. Guusje

    Would it be possible to translate the quote: ‘Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions’ from the movie Robin Hood starring Russel Crowe?

  8. Hello! Could you please translate for me in the word ”River” and the sentence ”The River is everywhere” in Quenya tengwar? ”The river is everywhere” is a quote from the book Siddharta written by Herman Hesse. Thank you!

    Would someone be able to do:

    The Road goes ever on and on
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone
    And I must follow, if I can,
    Pursuing it with weary feet,
    Until it joins some larger way,
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say.

    From The Fellowship of the Ring, obviously 🙂

    Sorry, it’s long; I’m looking into getting a tattoo of part of the poem, but I haven’t been able to decide on which lines yet.

    • And who says that quote exactly? I cannot remember for sure (sometimes my memory fails me completely). Gandalf? Bilbo? I need that info in order to add this request of yours to the waiting line.

        To April: This was not translated nor verified by Quenya101. It is not endorsed by Quenya101 and it’s accuracy cannot be guaranteed by Quenya101. If you still want this quote translated accurately, please check the info I asked you previously and I’ll be delighted to help you.

  11. Hey. Love the site. Was wondering if you could double check a translation for me that was translated and transcribed previously.

    The line was ‘White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise’. This was translated to ”Fánë falassi, ar pella, haiya laica nórë nu linta anarórë.’ Then transcribed to http://imgur.com/jaEMqll

    Was looking to see if that was all correct before I get it drawn on me for the rest of time. Appreciate any help you can give 🙂

    Hi I would like to get “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.” It’s by George RR Martin from his boo series.
