The quote is from the Silmarillion. The fellow who said it was particularly underhanded. Any takers?

Is this quote so hard, or is nobody looking at it?

I've been looking, but it took me some time and brain-racking to find this one!

this is Denethor speaking to Gandalf in Minas Tirith:
"For though the Stones be lost, they say, still the Lords of Gondor have keener sight than lesser men, and many messages come to them."

(Btw : This is almost a lie! At least Denethor is deliberately hiding the truth about the palantir from Gandalf. )

Very good, Guinevere!
Well, I'm in a way happy that it proved to be a very hard quote...

Your turn...

That was Thorin, in The Hobbit, talking to his company (the other dwarves and Bilbo.)

It's a line from "The Sea-Bell", so ol' Tom. Lothithil did a Fan-fic revolving around it, that I rather liked. It's always been one of my favourite stories.

Ah, that is from "Smith of Wootton Major"
. Little Tim says to Alf when he's cutting the cake:
"Dear Mr.Cook, only cut me a small slice please. I've eaten so much already I feel rather full."

Quite right (wight?). I used the quote because I gorged myself on rice-cakes last night. Delicious.

Those words are sung by a few of the Fair Folk, during Bilbo's visit to the Last Homely House.

Edit: Here is the song in full:
Quote:
Sing all ye joyful, now sing all together!
The wind's in the tree-top, the wind's in the heather;
The stars are in blossom, the moon is in flower,
And bright are the windows of Night in her tower.

Dance all ye joyful, now dance all together!
Soft is the grass, and let foot be like feather!
The river is silver, the shadows are fleeting;
Merry is May-time, and merry our meeting!

You are of course right, Son of Númenor, that "Merry is May-time " is in this song.
But I had really another person in mind who actually quoted it: "Merry is May-time! " with an exclamation mark! Can you find that too ? or is that asking too much ?
