Guinevere is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
"The rumour of the earth is dim and confused," he said. "Nothing walks upon it for many miles about us. Faint and far are the feet of our enemies."

Aragorn to Legolas and Gimli, after pressing his ear to the earth and listening. (In "The riders of Rohan")

I guessed long ago where this quote was (without actually looking it up) but I was too lazy to compose a new one!
Yes! "wish-fulfilment dreams" we spin to cheat
