Star (tarostar) | 5 comments There are quotes on GR falsely attributed to Tolkien that have a lot of likes and require a superlibrarian to edit/delete. Could a super please remove these four quotes?

These three are from the movie adaptations and were never written by Tolkien.
You can do a search but you won't find them in The Lord of the Rings or in any book by him.

The following one is a famously misattributed Tolkien quote.

"Little by little, one travels far is not a Tolkien quote but a misattributed Spanish saying translated into English."

Thank you in advance!
