Sting Synonymical quotes

This is kind of splicing the Backwards Quotes with the Antonym/Synonym fill in the blanks.

Here, you must find a quote, such as
"One thief deserves another"
and replace all the words with synonyms. So, the above quote becomes
"A single robber is worthy of a different one"
And everyone has to find the quote and the speaker!
Easy! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

OK, I'll do one:

"A single sick rotation is worthy of a diferent one"

Now, after the example quote, this should be plain obvious! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Okay, I found this very difficult, and didn´t come up with a good one, but here it goes:

This game's very hard. Is there another clue we could have that wouldn't totally give it away?

I know it´s hard. Though, it´s not because of the game itself, but because I am crap at finding synonymical words! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
I will give a clue that will make it much easier; it´s in one of the Rohan chapters in ROTK.

That would be Farmer Maggot to Frodo:

"Your counsel seems good to me now"?
It sounds like either Gandalf to Saruman or vice versa, or Frodo to Boromir.
Or Bilbo to Gandalf.
Or...I'll shut up now.

The quote seems correct, or just about (don´t remember, will look it up), but the persons are wrong.

No, not Aragorn. The Gandalf part is correct though.
Just for your notice, I won´t be on this weekend (no computer), so if you guess and know you are right, just continue. If you are not sure, wait till Monday.

Anyone out there that is interested in this thread? Would be a shame if it died out completely.
Anyone can post a quote now, as I don´t care about my quote anymore....It was Théoden to Gandalf btw.

Isn't this Eomer to Gimli?

I think the correct quote is:

if it stood but a little higher from the ground.
