Law of physics: If you kill a Balrog, you will be killed too.

Ëarendil was the first astronaut

"Fëanor and his sons are possibly the cleverest (yet dumbest) elves in Arda."

That was my favorite. So true, so true. 

"Hobbits state the overly obvious" was great, too, and "Law of physics: If you kill a Balrog, you will be killed too." And "
Locking up your daughter in a tree house and expecting her to stay there is just simply naïve."

And "Make sure your master is mentally healthy before you swear fealty to him."

And "
Keep Fëanor away from flammable substances."

And "
Having seven sons in a row is not necessarily good luck."

"A white cat is even worse luck than a black one."

And yes, smiths are definitely insane. Especially Feanor.

Thank you, thank you!

If Elrond had just shoved Isildur in, things would've been so much better . . . Gollum would've had better grammar for one thing :p

"Locking up your daughter in a tree house and expecting her to stay there is just simply naļve." <- That's the best one, I think! :D
Though these two are also hilarious: "Arwen stole Glorfindel's horse." and "Law of physics: If you kill a Balrog, you will be killed too." :)

Could you explain these two: "A white cat is even worse luck than a black one." and "It is a good skill to distinguish between numbers 30 and 31." I don't seem to get them... :/

This is probably way too late, but the cat one refers to Queen Beruthiel, the wife of a king of Gondor. She had nine black cats, which she used to spy upon the Gondorians, and one white cat, which was used to spy upon the other cats. She was hated for this and the cats were considered bad luck.

She's one of the characters I just can't bring myself to pity at all. 

And I, I am sorry to say, have no idea what the 30 and 31 means. Sorry!

Thanks!
I do remember Beruthiel (I actually like her name) and her cats... As a matter of fact, Tolkien hated cats... ;-)
