Hello Martin,

These two verses are from the Ślokavārttika of Kumārila.  The
verse jñātārthaṃ jñātasambandhaṃ is no. 17 and the verse sarvasyaiva hi
śāstrasya is no. 12 in the very beginning of the Ślokavārttika.

> jñātārthaṃ jñātasambandhaṃ śrotuṃ śrotā pravartate |
> granthādau tena vaktavyaḥ sambandhaḥ saprayojanaḥ ||
> sarvasyaiva hi śāstrasya karmaṇo vāpi kasyacit |
> yāvat prayojanaṃ noktaṃ tāvat tat kena gṛhyate ||
