Powerful Frodo quotations

Instead of a Dark Lord, you would have a queen, not dark but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Tempestuous as the sea, and stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me and despair!

May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.

There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.

Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.

Frodo: Go back, Sam! I’m going to Mordor alone. Sam: Of course you are, and I’m coming with you!

Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you.

How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep...that have taken hold.

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

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well. So up you get! Come on, Mr. Frodo dear! Sam will give you a ride. Just tell him where to go, and he'll go

There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

Those remarkable, God-given eyes! That glorious, good-natured personality! Elijah's Frodo is a dazzling light in the doom and gloom of war and despair.

I came to feel as protective of Elijah as Sam does of Frodo .

. In turn, Elijah helped me discover a lot about myself and I literally might not have survived the journey had this young prince of an actor not taken me under his wing.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

It is useless to meet revenge with revenge; it will heal nothing.

Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.

And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy?

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

He is not half through yet, and to what he will come in the end not even Elrond can foretell. Not to evil, I think. He may become like a glass filled with a clear light for eyes to see that can.

A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

Your time may come. Do not be too sad, Sam. You cannot be always torn in two. You will have to be one and whole, for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be, and to do.

Sam, clinging to Frodo's arm, collapsed on a step in the black darkness.

'Poor old Bill!' he said in a choking voice. 'Poor old Bill! Wolves and snakes! But the snakes were too much for him. I had to choose, Mr. Frodo. I had to come with you.

Elrond raised his eyes and looked at him, and Frodo felt his heart pierced by the sudden keenness of the glance. 'If I understand aright all that I have heard,' he said, 'I think that this task is appointed for you, Frodo; and that if you do not find a way, no one will.

A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.

It would be the death of you to come with me, Sam," said Frodo, "and I could not have borne that." "Not as certain as being left behind," said Sam. "But I am going to Mordor." "I know that well enough, Mr. Frodo. Of course you are. And I'm coming with you.

I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.

He used often to say there was only one Road;

that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. 'It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,' he used to say. 'You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.

No taste of food, no feel of water, no sound of wind, no memory of tree or grass or flower, no image of moon or star are left to me. I am naked in the dark, Sam, and there is no veil between me and the wheel of fire. I begin to see it even with my waking eyes, and all else fades.

I'll get there, if I leave everything but my bones behind," said Sam.

"And I'll carry Mr. Frodo up myself, if it breaks my back and heart.

Well, you have now, Sam, dear Sam,' said Frodo, and he lay back in Sam's gentle arms, closing his eyes, like a child at rest when night-fears are driven away by some loved voice or hand. Sam felt that he could sit like that in endless happiness.

But fear no more! 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.

For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
