Speak friend and enter
November 6, 2010
This is a bookmark from the Mexican Tolkien Society, with a quote from The Lord of the Rings, “Speak friend and enter” written in Spanish, and an image of Gandalf the wizard:
Gandalf, and the rest of the fellowship, find this inscription on the gates of the mines of Moria, under the Misty Mountains. It is a riddle actually. To open the gates of Moria Gandalf had to say the word “Mellon“, meaning “friend” in the Elvish language.
