Day 14

A favorite quote from any movie

This quote from the Two Towers is what kept me from despair after 9/11, NOT the chimp and his wife yapping on TV about kids and god.

I know. It's all wrong. By rights we should not even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you did not 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. 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. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they did not. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
