Tolkien: "Rede is oft found at the rising of the sun"

Posted by Ines on April 02, 2004

Hi there,

Being a German native speaker I would like to know if anybody of you is familiar with the term "rede" (Old English 'read': council, advice).

Thus, the proverb-like sentence translates: Council is often found at the rising of the sun.
Does such a saying, proverb or idiom still exist in English and do you still use it?

Are there similar ones with regard to its meaning? If yes, please send them to me.

Thanx very much in advance.
Cheers, Ines
