And Ode for Easter

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (1937-1949):
Volume 1: The Fellowship of the Ring
Volume 2: The Two Towers
Volume 3: The Return of the King

"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 tot know the end. Because how could the end be happy?...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 will 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. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. Because they were holding on to something...There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for."

- Samwise "The Brave" Gamgee,
Lord of the Rings, Two Towers

Vivre! Rire! Aimer!
