I don't have my books with me but I think I know what that is. I may write it down slightly wrongly:

Many are the strange chances of this world, and help oft shall come from the hands of the weak when the wise falter.

I believe it was said by Gandalf
but I don't know whereabouts.

Correct. To tell you the truth, I couldn't tell you where that quote is. I just got it off the top of my head, I must have read it recently.

Disclaimer: I'm not pursuing any other purpose but clarification:

The above was said by Gandalf in 2851 T.A at the White Council, after his discovery that Necromancer was not Nazgul but Sauron himself. The quote is given in The Silmarillion, in the chapter entitled 'Of the War of the Rings and the Third Age'

now, Orodoliel, pray proceed

(BTW, excellent quote and excellent 'backwordization' [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img])

Who and Where?

I wasn't sure what you are meant to do when there is a name in the Quote, so I just left it blank.

Yes, a hint please. As for me, all my translations are coming out pretty weird. Unless it is from anything but LotR or Hobbit, I don't recognize it.

I found it! I guess I wasn't expecting a combination of minor works and other way round... The narrator says of the cake planned by Master Cook Nokes in 'Smith of Wootton Major':

His chief notion was that it should be very sweet and rich.
