“She said to me, ‘Even now, there is hope left.’ But I cannot see it. It is long since we had any hope.“

l-o-t-r:

‘The Bag End designs could not be bettered. Their colours are warm with lots of wood and signs of industry, writing and cooking and overeating. Simply, they are hobbity and to me very familiar. They are in accord with my own untidiness and need to be comfy. The kitchen table where Frodo pours the tea is akin to the family kitchen of my childhood. Yet it is all with a difference because Bag End feels like a hole in the ground.’

l-o-t-r:

‘In that dream I thought the eastern sky grew dark and there was a growing thunder, but in the West a pale light lingered, and out of it I heard a voice, remote but clear, crying:
Seek for the Sword that was broken:
In Imladris it dwells;
There shall be counsels taken
Stronger than Morgul-spells.
There shall be shown a token
That Doom is near at hand,
For Isildur’s Bane shall waken,
And the Halfling forth shall stand.’

l-o-t-r:

“I think we lived very Hobbit lifestyles. We were always going to the pub and having a bit of a drink and a meal. Hobbits love to eat, so Hobbits love to drink. We, in some ways, embodied the things that are Hobbity initially, and I think we just became more Hobbity as the project wore on. The Hobbits tended to spend their free time together, so the the closest friends that I had on the movie were Billy and Dom and Sean.”

l-o-t-r:

“Boromir teaches him that there is something inherently valuable about man, and brave, and worthwhile, and that in spite of whatever doubts Aragorn has about himself and about the value of man, as a race in itself, apart from the others, there’s great strength in men. That’s what he tells him. What he shows me.”

Faramir: “Never fitted me either. Boromir was always the soldier. They were so alike, he and my father. Proud… stubborn, even. But strong.”
Pippin: I think you have strength, of a different kind. And one day your father will see it.”
