Hint: the second part of the sentence has changed beyond comprehension. The first part is pretty accurate.
It is part of a longer quote between only two people.

quote is:

Look at it! Change the style.

Is it...

‘Elves are beautiful. They’ve got,’ she spat the word, ‘style. Beauty. Grace. That’s what matters. If cats looked like frogs we’d realize what nasty cruel little bastards they are.’

Oh wait, wrong universe.

Is it Sam to Frodo: "‘Look at it! The wind’s changed."

This should be pretty easy, I think:

Even if you are wearing it, I command you that you follow, to leap from a cliff, or his cast into the fire.

Is this Frodo to Sméagol near the Black Gate?

Quote:
If I, wearing it, were to command you, you would obey, even if it were to leap from a precipice or to cast yourself into the fire.


edit: Should we add "Sméagol" to the word filter to add the acute accent?

Just to make this easier, I'm going to use one of the interim translations rather than the final one, which was garbled beyond recognition:

Quote:
I came from the other side. Baggins saw?

I added Déagol too. I don't know why I didn't add them in the first place. (x-posted with Jude).

Follow your instinct! It's a million-to-one chance, but it just might work!

Million-to-one chances come up nine times out of ten.

Is it the Nazgûl as quoted by Farmer Maggot?

'"I come from yonder' [more stuff spoken by Maggot] "Have you seen Baggins?"
