Miranda Otto as Éowyn // The Lord of the Rings

You stand between me and my lord and kin. 

lord of the rings: éowyn, shieldmaiden of rohan.
A sword rang as it was drawn. “Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may.”

"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"

Then Merry heard of all sounds in that hour the strangest. It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel. "But no living man am I!”

And then her heart changed, or at least she understood it; and the winter passed, and the sun shone upon her.

For she is a fair maiden, fairest lady of a house of queens. And yet I know not how I should speak of her. When I first looked on her and perceived her unhappiness, it seemed to me that I saw a white flower standing straight and proud, shapely as a lily and yet knew that it was hard, as if wrought by elf-wrights out of steel.


favourite Lord of the Rings quotes

"You had horses, and deeds of arms, and the free fields; But she, born in the body of a maid, had spirit and courage at least the match of yours."
