lord of the rings meme: six relationships [1/6] → “Then as he had kept watch Sam had noticed that at times a light seemed to be shining faintly within; but now the light was even clearer and stronger. Frodo’s face was peaceful, the marks of fear and care had left it; but it looked old, old and beautiful, as if the chiseling of the shaping years was now revealed in many fine lines that had before been hidden, though the identity of the face was not changed. Not that Sam Gamgee put it that way to himself. He shook his head, as if finding words useless, and murmured: “I love him. He’s like that, and sometimes it shines through, somehow. But I love him, whether or no.”

Lord of the Rings Meme: Eight Quotes [6/8] → Gandalf & Pippin - Rotk (Movie)
"I didn't think it would end this way."
"End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path.
One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back,
and all turns to silver glass... then you see it!"
"What? Gandalf? See what?"
"White shores... and beyond. A far green country, under a swift sunrise."
"Well, that isn't so bad."
"No... no, it isn't."
[…] I saw him ride over seven streams, over waters wide and grey;
I saw him walk in empty lands, until he passed away
Into the shadows of the North. I saw him then no more.
The North Wind may have heard the horn of the son of Denethor.
O Boromir! From the high walls westward I looked afar,
But you come not from the empty lands where no men are. […]
My dear Frodo. Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet after a hundred years they can still surprise you.

“ I know it is too late to turn aside. I know there is not much point now in hoping. If I were a knight of Rohan capable of great deeds…but I’m not. I’m a Hobbit. And I know I can’t save Middle Earth. I just want to help my friends; Frodo, Sam, Pippin. More than anything I wish I could see them again.”
I would not take this thing, if it lay by the highway. Not were Minas Tirith falling in ruin and I alone could save her, so, using the weapon of the Dark Lord for her good and my glory. No, I do not wish for such triumphs, Frodo son of Drogo.
