then that was said by Elrond to Gimli (in chapter The Ring Goes South).

Well, as for hints, I can not be so sure that they are correct because I am at camp and without my book. I will give this hint for I am almost positive that it is correct. It is said by a hobbit and not in FotR. I hope those might help.

Hi Narduewen!

Is this the quote?

Quote:
For when you are older, you will learn that folk are not always what they seem; and though you may have taken me for a soft stranger-lad and easy prey, let me warn you: I am not, I am a halfling, hard, bold, and wicked!
That is, of course, Pippin to young Bergil son of Beregond.

Yeah, yeah, it's a very easy quote.

But one of my favourites - I'm a world class procrastinator. (Been dead & in the Barrow for almost 2 years and this is only my 495th post!?)

Malice that wakes in the morning is the mirth of Morgoth ere night.
