L'échanson du roi dit bonsoir au chef des gardes: ''Venez avec moi goûter le nouveau vin, il y a fort à faire pour retirer les fûts vides des caves; aussi: PRENONS D 'ABORD UN VERRE POUR FACILITER LE TRAVAIL'' page 186, chapitre: ''Tonneaux en liberté''
qui a dit: ''ET CELA, IL NE LE FAUT POUR RIEN AU MONDE''?

It's interesting to translate your French into English and see how much it differs from Tolkien's own words. Two translations: it's like the 'telephone game' we played as kids!

No idea about your new quote! I'll have to search for it.

j'essaie la traduction anglaise que j'ai trouvée: ''And it, one needs for nothing in the world'' (si ça peut aider...) :wink:

Still no idea about this one. How about a clue, Michka? Is this in The Hobbit?

Oui, Merry c'est une phrase du livre ''The Hobbit'' et le personnage est très 'spécial'
