The 30 Day LOTR Challenge: Day 14


Saddest Quote:
Not so much SAD as poignant: 
It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.” 

OR the movie rendition, where they mix several of Sam's book quotes to make this lovely bit: 
It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something.
As for really SAD quotes...I don't know. Hmm. 
Well, in the movie..... THIS:
Aragorn: I do not know what strength is in my blood, but i swear l will not let the White City fall. Or our people fail.
Boromir: Our people. Our people. I would have followed you, my brother. My captain. My King...
FOLLOWED BY THIS:
Aragorn: they will look for him from the white tower, but he will not return. 

In the book..I don't know. There are too many decisions to make.
