I don't have my book with me to check for sure, but this sounds like Thingol to Beren and Luthien. Maybe?

Question

Hello,Narduewen, where are you ? ?
Don't you want to post a new "proverb" for us to guess ?
Or shall I do it (I have a list of them ready...) Or any one else?

Gandalf maybe to Aragorn speaking of Sauron and Saruman? I'm not certain and I'm to lazy to go get the books and find out.

It is Gandalf who says it, but not to Aragorn.... and you're right in that it is about Saruman.

I don't know, really. It must be some non-human, but speaking creature...
But wouldn't Ents need even more words before deeds than men?
