Does it have any key words from the original?

Edit to bring it to the new page:

Frelga speculated about Treebeard on the previous page, I don't think that got addressed.

If it's not Treebeard, I think we'll need a subtle hint...

Is the quote found in Lord of the Rings?

No, before LOTR, and thus, before we met Treebeard.

It is extensively changed. Extensively.

Hmm... No. but it’s in a very famous chapter.

Here's my Hail-Varda guess:

Quote:
Go back? No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!


Bilbo, speaking to himself

Dwarves about Bilbo, or Bilbo objecting to dwarves dissing him?

Frelga's second guess is good.

I would guess that it is Bilbo when he steals the cup from from Smaug, talking to himself: "'More like a grocer than a burglar' indeed! Well, we'll hear no more of that."

This is fun.

And these people are fly of trees and beast hunters. So we are their friends and if they don't leave, we'll get them in the best way we can.
