I just discovered this challenging game. May I join in?

This must be Saruman telling Frodo:

"But do not expect me to wish you health and long life. You will have neither. But that is not my doing. I merely foretell."

Finally found it: it's Aragorn speaking to Eomer (as a message to Theoden)

" None may live now as they have lived, and few shall keep what they call their own."

"It is harder to discover men in the forests and plains, replied the hobbit, and if thou are meant to exist on the path, there might be a possibility that thou will be searched for on the path and not away from it."
Once again, this proves to be rather hard to make up...

"The rumour of the earth is dim and confused," he said. "Nothing walks upon it for many miles about us. Faint and far are the feet of our enemies."

Aragorn to Legolas and Gimli, after pressing his ear to the earth and listening. (In "The riders of Rohan")

I guessed long ago where this quote was (without actually looking it up) but I was too lazy to compose a new one!
