the lord of the rings quotes

  • Aragorn: I never understood why people cared so much about their dumb hobbits until I got dumb hobbits myself. I've only had Frodo and Sam for a day and a half, but if anything happened to them, I would kill everyone in this room and then myself.
  • [at the council of Elrond]
  • Legolas: But Frodo, beating Sauron... it can't be done. You're asking us to die.
  • Frodo: Yeah, I guess I am.
  • [pause]
  • Aragorn: [stands up] Frodo, I have lived most of my life surrounded by my enemies. I will be grateful to die among my friends.
  • Gimli: [stands up] You're an honorable man, Frodo. I will fight beside you.
  • Boromir: Aww, what the hell, I don't got that long a lifespan anyway...
  • [stands up]
  • Boromir: Well, now I'm standing. Happy? We're all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.
