"The Green Ember burns; the seed of the New World smolders. Healing is on the horizon, but a fire comes first. Bear the flame."
~Heather Longtreader, The Green Ember
"I do not know what strength is in my blood, but I swear to you I will not let the White City fall, nor our people fail."
~Aragorn, The Lord Of The Rings, The Fellowship Of The Ring
"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."
~Samwise, The Lord Of The Rings, The Two Towers
