"Itís like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didnít 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 itís only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines itíll 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 didnít. They kept going because they were holding on to something.... That thereís some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and itís worth fighting for."
