Troll Sayings and Words of Wisdom

Collected by Grandpa Carl and the Guardian Trolls



Many of the sayings we hear regularly originally may have been said by a Troll. We have gone through many of our notes and stories and of course the messages from the Guardian Trolls and have put together this short list of interpreted and un-interpreted sayings from Trolldom (the phrases in parentheses may be the original version). We hope you can find a bit of wisdom to take into your New Year with these gems. Happy New Year from all of us here at the Trollshop!
