The Ringbearer is setting out on the quest of Mount Doom and you who travel with him, no oath nor bond is laid to go further than you will. Farewell. Hold to your purpose and may the blessings of elves, and men, and all free folk go with you.
My lady, you are fair, and brave, and have much to live for and many who love you. I know it is too late to turn aside. I know there is not much point now in hoping. If I were a knight of Rohan, capable of great deeds…but I’m not. I’m a Hobbit, and I know I can’t save Middle Earth. I just want to help my friends, Frodo, Sam…Pippin. More than anything, I wish I could see them again.
