Favorite Orcs Quotes

1. "Az irigység a középszeruek vallása. Megnyugtatja oket, csillapítja mardosó nyugtalanságukat, és végso soron szétrohasztja a lelküket, mert addig igazolják vele a kapzsiságukat és fukarságukat, amíg már maguk is elhiszik, hogy az jó, és hogy a mennyország kapui csak a magukfajta korcsok elott nyílnak meg; akik úgy élik le az életüket, hogy semmi nyomot nem hagynak a szánalmas igyekezeten kívül, hogy másokat lehúzzanak, hogy kizárják, sot ha lehet, tönkretegyék oket; akik puszta létükkel, önmagukkal bizonyítják, milyen szegények lélekben, szellemben és testben. Boldog az, akit a hülyék megugatnak, mert a lelke nem lesz a martalékuk."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
2. "Nobody ever imagined a bunch of Orcs would steal a database table…"
Author: Charles Stross
3. "I fireballed him as he was seeking out treasure after we wiped out a band of orcs, playing rock-paper-scissors with each orc to determine who would prevail in combat. This is a lot more exciting than it sounds.It's quite civilized, and a little weird. You go running after someone through the woods, catch up with him, bare your teeth, and sit down to play a little roshambo."
Author: Cory Doctorow
4. "If you read 'Lord of the Rings' and dismiss it as a lie because it has orcs and elves, you're missing the whole point of the story. If children don't have to be concerned about strangers because there's no such thing as a Big Bad Wolf dressed like Granny, you're missing the point."
Author: Doug TenNapel
5. "Let me think!' said Aragorn. 'And now may I make a right choice, and change the evil fate of this unhappy day!' He stood silent for a moment. 'I will follow the Orcs,' he said at last. 'I would have guided Frodo to Mordor and gone with him to the end but if I seek him now in the wilderness, I must abandon the captives to torment and death. My heart speaks clearly at last: the fate of the Bearer is in my hands no longer. The Company has played its part. Yet we that remain cannot forsake our companions while we have strength left. Come! We will go now. Leave all that can be spared behind! We will press on by day and dark!"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
6. "Great engines crawled across the field; and in the midst was a huge ram, great as a forest-tree a hundred feet in length, swinging on mighty chains. Long had it been forging in the dark smithies of Mordor, and its hideous head, founded of black steel, was shaped in the likeness of a ravening wolf; on it spells of ruin lay. Grond they named it, in memory of the Hammer of the Underworld of old. Great beasts drew it, orcs surrounded it, and behind walked mountain-trolls to wield it."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
7. "Orcs, and talking trees, and leagues of grass, and galloping riders, and glittering caves, and white towers and golden halls, and battles, and tall ships sailing, all these passed before Sam's mind."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
8. "Gollum laughed. 'The Dead Marshes, yes, yes: that is their name,' he cackled. 'You should not look in when the candles are lit.''Who are they? What are they?' asked Sam shuddering, turning to Frodo, who was now behind him.'I don't know,' said Frodo in a dreamlike voice. 'But I have seen them too. In the pools when the candles were lit. They lie in all the pools, pale faces, deep deep under the dark water. I saw them: grim faces and evil, and noble faces and sad. Many faces proud and fair and weeds in their silver hair. But all foul, all rotting, all dead. A fell light is in them.' Frodo hid his eyes in his hands. 'I know not who they are; but I saw there Men and Elves, and Orcs beside them."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
9. "All those of the Quendi who came into the hands of Melkor, ere Utumno was broken, were put there in prison, and by slow arts of cruelty were corrupted and enslaved; and thus did Melkor breed the hideous race of the Orcs in envy and mockery of the Elves, of whom they were afterwards the bitterest foes."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
10. "He says that we have learned nearly all that we know from them, and have been made a nobler people; and he says that the Men that have lately come over the Mountains are hardly better than Orcs.'That is true', answered Sador; 'true at least of some of us. But the up-climbing is painful, and from high places it is easy to fall low."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
11. "You cannot pass," he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
12. "Maedhros laughed saying: 'A king is he that can hold his own or else his title is vain. Thingol does but grant us lands where his power does not run. Indeed Doriath alone would be his realm this day but for the coming of the Noldor. Therefore in Doriath let him reign and be glad that he has the sons of Finwe for his neighbours not the Orcs of Morgoth that we found."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
13. "Nagyapámnak viszont sokkal szörnyubb valósághoz kellett hozzászoknia. Fogta a kezemet, hogy el ne essen, a fák és bokrok jobbra-balra korcsolyáztak szédülo szeme elott, és eközben hirtelen ráébredt, hogy a tudat valószínuleg nem egyéb a biológia egyik baleseténél. Bár sosem volt vallásos, a lélekben mindig hitt: abban, hogy van bennünk egy ero, ami túléli testünk halálát. De ahogy az agya egyre jobban ingadozott, egyre surubben kapott rövidzárlatot, végül kénytelen volt higgadtan, örökös jókedvéhez képest méltatlanul higgadtan beletörodni abba, hogy az agy is csak egy szerv, éppolyan, mint a többi, a különbség mindössze az, hogy ha ez leáll, mindennek vége."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
14. "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."[Kung Fu Monkey -- Ephemera, blog post, March 19, 2009]"
Author: John Rogers
15. "What?" I asked, deciding to go with uppity. "Enjoying yourself?" Hank asked, his mouth twitching. "No," I said angrily. "I'm dead. Now I have to run all the way back to my lifeless body and get my stuff. The orcs and trolls will be hanging around and we'll have to fight them and I can't do that without my good armor. I'll have to use the crappy stuff I have stashed in my trunk. I had a really good sword and helmet and now they're gone. That just plain sucks." Hank stared at me. Then he said, "You do know I don't know what the fuck you're talkin' about." "Diablo," I replied, like that explained it all."
Author: Kristen Ashley
16. "In the evening he went to the cinema to see "The Lord of the Rings", which he had never before had time to see. He thought that orcs, unlike human beings, were simple and uncomplicated creatures."
Author: Stieg Larsson
17. "Critics and academics have been trying for forty years to bury the greatest work of imaginative fiction in English. They ignore it, they condescend to it, they stand in large groups with their backs to it - because they're afraid of it. They're afraid of dragons. They have Smaugophobia. "Oh those awful Orcs," they bleat, flocking after Edmund Wilson. They know if they acknowledge Tolkien they'll have to admit that fantasy can be literature, and that therefore they'll have to redefine what literature is. And they're too damned lazy to do it."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
