Is it this one:

This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong.

akin to Frelga, I went a circuitous route through Hindi, Chinese (traditional), Serbian and Polish.

That's funny, because this quote fits the translation almost perfectly:

Quote:
I have thought of a nice ending for it: and he lived happily ever after to the end of his days.

Was it this one, in Rivendell after the Council of Elrond?

Quote:
Books ought to have good endings. How would this do: and they all settled down and lived happily ever after?

No.... but you are getting close. One more place where he mentioned his book ending.

Okay, what about this, right after he made an attempt to get the ring back:

Quote:
Don't adventures ever have an end? I suppose not. Someone else always has to carry on the story. Well, it can't be helped. I wonder if it's any good trying to finish my book?

No, now you have moved away from the very close quote you had the previous 2 times.

This one is closer:

Quote:
I'll do my best to finish my book before you return.

No.... it’s very very very very similar to your first two quotes. Almost identical, just spoken slightly differently & at a different time than the ones you mentioned.

Well, there's this quote before the party, which is word-for-word verbatim the same as the first quote I posted, which was spoken after the party just before he left for good:

Quote:
I have thought of a nice ending for it: and he lived happily ever after to the end of his days.

Quite a lot, as it turns out :D

Gawd, he did repeat it a lot, didn’t he!

So... it is in FOTR, and thus has to be between the party and the fellowship heading out...

Well, if it's between the party and the fellowship heading out, the only thing I could find is the quote I posted first. If it's not that one, I'm at a loss.
