Ulmo to Tuor:
"But behold!" said he, "in the armour of Fate (as the Children of Earth name it) there is ever a rift, and in the walls of Doom a breach, until the full-making, which ye call the End. So it shall be while I endure, a secret voice that gainsayeth, and a light where darkness was decreed."

At last I have found it in the Hobbit !

"Is that The Mountain?" asked Bilbo in a solemn voice, looking at it with round eyes. He had never seen a thing that looked so big before.

This is when they are approaching the Misty Mountains.

Not so far away from the last quote, that one...

"Here," said Elrond, turning to Gandalf, "is Boromir,a man from the South. He arrived in the grey morning, and seeks for counsel. I have bidden him to be present, for here his questions will be answered."
