    Hey everyone. I'm doing a paper, and I need the line where Gandalf says that there are other powers in the world besides the will of evil. One of the lines from the movie goes like "There are many powers in this world for good or for evil", but I can't find them in the book. Were these added for the movie?

    That specific sentence appears in the book ~ Fellowship of the Ring / Chapter ~ Many Meetings / Gandalf to Frodo. The movie does move quotes around though ~ the easiest example to give is the one about pity staying Bilbo's hand (regarding Gollum) which in the film happens in Moria but in the book happens right at the start when the real nature of the ring is discovered by Gandalf at Bag End. Similarly the bit about 'other powers' being at work and that Frodo was meant to have the ring appears in the Chapter The Shadow of the Past, FoTR and not in the same Moria dialogue.
