any of the hobbits of the Shire about Bilbo/Frodo. To narrow the search:

Sandyman family in private conversation about Frodo?

You are right that it was about Bilbo. It was not said by Ted Sandyman although he was there.
re-read the page *slaps forehead* DUH! the miller [B]IS[/B Ted Sandyman. You are correct but I had it as a continuation to him talking to a stranger and the Gaffer at the Green Dragon.
Your turn HerenIsterion. BTW I like to say your name out loud because it is SOO cool sounding.
So sorry, I do that all the time. HerenIstarion.

Bilbo Baggins might have said this after some of the dwarves started to arrive at his home in 'The Hobbit'.

How is this...
The elven king in Mirkwood could have said this to his councilers when they were trying to figure out why the dwarves were there in the first place. Bilbo was at the palace and might have even heard it spoken because he was invisible and trying to steal food.

I think I can give you another hint by extending the imaginative quote:

I think I have it this time. It was 'said' by Tom or one of the trolls.
'There's more to come yet, or I'm mighty mistook. Lots and none at all, it is. No burrahobbits, but lots of these here dwarves. That's about the shape of it!
Those dwarves are always moving about in packs, thats what it is, darn.

Gralin silverspears, that's correct. Welcome, hope you enjoy being dead and BTW, are you related to Gralin Musicteeth or reincarnated?!

No I'm not related to Musicteeth. Nor am I reincarnated. Here's the next quote... (I am new at these "un-quotes so this one will probably be too easy, I couldn't think of anything else.)

Quote:
It will seem almost normal compared to a dwarf riding a horse of the Mark.

This is an old thread, but I like it. I'll attempt an answer. Is this Aragorn speaking to the grey company as they approach the Stone of Erech?

(H-I might not remember this thread, since it is from last July, but I hope he does. If not, we'll try another non-quote later.)

Possibly Aragorn to the hobbits as they approach Weathertop? That's the only other possibility I can think of at the moment.

Well, I should say, as Avis slogan goes, you try harder

As a hint - it was quite a bit earlier - say, some 80 years before

Give it another try

Gandalf while seeking the Doors of Moria?

EDIT: I cross posted with HI and afterwards I saw his latest hint. So I'll change my answer: I assume it's Thorin in Mirkwood about climbing the tallest tree to look over the forest

Than maybe Pippin in answer to ruffian mocking Kings messangers. Something along the lines:

Quote:
'King's messengers! That for them!
When I see one, I'll take notice, perhaps.'...'I wonder when such luck may find me. I am a messenger of the King!,
with a slight difference of tone in between two sentences...?

Not that either. maybe a hint is in order: the word luck is found in the book quotation in continuation of which I gave this imaginary one.

Quote:
'You had the luck, Merry,' said Pippin softly, after a long pause. 'You were riding with Gandalf. I wonder when such luck may find me.

Thumbs up

Yep that was the one I had in mind! not very hard was it ...
btw - what if there are more than one correct, like now for instance, do the rules say you have to keep guessing, until you get the exact one the riddler had on mind??
it would be only fair.

I reckon, riddler should extend a quote a bit, to give hint by narrowing the search. Scroll up to mine about the trolls to have a sample (i.e. anyone could say dwarves moved in pacs, but only trolls would end the sentence with 'darn')

next one, than:
