I was watching The Return of the King tonight, and thought I would compile a handful of my favorite quotes from the end of the trilogy.  Mostly the ones that tend to make me cry!


Forth, and fear no darkness! Arise! Arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Ride now! Ride now! Ride! Ride to ruin and the world's ending!

Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.

Gandalf - 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.  And then you see it.

Pippin: What? Gandalf?  See what?

Gandalf: White shores... and beyond, a far green country, under a swift sunrise.

Certainty of death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?

The Precious made me do it!

Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

I will not say, Do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.


  1. I'm so glad you put a picture of your mostly-bald boyfriend. :-P :-)

  2. Excuse me, I think Eomer has plenty of hair!
