Thumbs up correct !

Well done, Mariska! I thought this one would be hard to find, since it is so general.

Well, it seems that Mariska isn't around to confirm my answer, but as I know it is correct, I will go ahead and post a new proverb.

Nope. That was a different quote altogether and I believe Frodo said that Gollum and it went something like this - May the third time prove the best.
So anyway you're totally off.

Sleepy, do you have your book with you? If so - check it out: chapter "Of Herbs amd Stewed Rabbit". Sam says:
Quote:

Ah, to prove Sleepy wrong!

It may be in more than one place, of course. But this is certainly one of them.

Well, now that I've checked properly. I have found it occurs thrice. Once where Evisse mentioned and twice in the Hobbit. Seeing as it wasn't such a good quote you may pose the next question Evisse.

No, it was a very good quote. And obviously a favourite of Tolkien's, since he used it so often!
