Mr. Sam Gamgee

December 3, 2008

I think this is my favorite quote from Lord of the Rings, and I was just reminded of it this last weekend while watching the marathon on TV. 

Sam: 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.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there’s some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.

~There is good to be found in our world of evil. Search it out and be it.

    Hey Jer,

    I just thought you should know that that is my favorite movie quote of all time. I even tried to fit it into my valedictorian speech in high school, but it was too long, haha. Instead I had to use a Gandalf quote from the first movie. I like your blog alot, keep up the good work!
