Tolkien quotes? Can't Post

In an article about the toast for Tolkien's birthday on the front page, Demosthenes links to this page -

http://www.csmonitor.com/Books/2013/0102/10-quotes-by-J.R.R.-Tolkien-on-his-birthday/A-merrier-world

I'm here to tell you that the person who put together this list of 'quotes' does not know their Tolkien! The first, '...it would be a much merrier world' is mangled and inaccurate. The second and fourth are not by Tolkien at all! (I gave up reading them after that)

What's more, Tolkien did not teach at Cambridge! Where on earth does the Christian Science Monitor find these people?
