These are hard to come up with... much harder than the opposite quotes.

At any rate, that is correct.

It's in TTT. And the sentence ends with: "... 'tis said."

I actually found this a long time ago, and then forgot about the thread...

10 days rule...

"Because you are not lowly in your bearing, White Rider - and such a quality that you have is not without proper cause, for you posess both a keen intelect and a clear and farsighted visage."

If that is not wholly correct in terms of grammar, my apologies. Still, the meaning, I think, is clear.

I don't know why nobody tried to solve Rimbaud's quote (post #96) ?
I think it must be from the Akallabŕth, the messengers of ManwŰ speaking to the N˙menoreans:
" But this we hold to be true, that your home is not here, neither in the land of Aman nor anywhere within the Circles of the World."

Well, I guess it's my turn at this (though Guinevere solved the harder quote, I think...)

That's the Elves of Rivendell talking to Bilbo when they woke him up in the middle of the night with their singing. I don't have TH with me though, so I can't find the exact quote.
