No lathspell you should not feel stupid, this isn't a well known quote. I don't think this will be much help.

---e t-ere are a--n- -- --- --n- t-at t-e --a--- ---- -ra- -a--, an- -ea-e --a-- ---e a-a-n. -et - -- n-t

Oh, wait, I know it! It's Haldir, in FotR:

"Some there are among us who sing that the Shadow will draw back, and peace shall come again. Yet I do not believe that the world about us will ever again be as it was of old, or the light of the Sun as it was aforetime."

Oops, I think my previous version had the wrong number of gaps in the 8th word. This is the correct version.

What about an S?

And I know exactly what you mean about crosswords. I find it helps to copy down the spaces and try different letter combinations in the gaps. Not that I'm taking this too seriously or anything... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

It's almost clear now, though I could not find the entire quote yet. I think a 'W' would do good.
