    Daran Norris and Kath Soucie in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2002)

    TOM BOMBADIL telling Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin about himself:

    But you are young and I am old. Eldest, that's what I am. Mark my words, my friends: Tom was here before the river and the trees; Tom remembers the first raindrop and the first acorn. He made paths before the Big People, and saw the Little People arriving. He was here before the Kings and the graves and the Barrow-wights. When the Elves passed westward, Tom was here already, before the seas were bent. He knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless - before the Dark Lord came from Outside.

    Orlando Bloom in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

    LEGOLAS telling Gimli and Aragorn about Fangorn Forest:

    It is old, very old... So old that almost I feel young again, as I have not felt since I journeyed with you children. It is old and full of memory. I could have been happy here, if I had come in days of peace.

    BILBO BAGGINS telling Gandalf how he feels:

    I am old, Gandalf. I don't look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. 'Well-preserved' indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can't be right. I need a change, or something.
