Also, he has some of the greatest lines in the story!
Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't 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 didn't 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 didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.
One of the best quotes - it applies to writing and to life. It's worth fighting for. It's my absolute favorite quote in the entire series. (Though I do love a lot of them!)
At the end of the story, Sam lives on with his wife and their children, telling the story of Frodo and the Ring to everyone. He becomes the storyteller in place of Frodo. I love Sam and Frodo... the best, best friends.
Do you enjoy that quote from "The Lord of the Rings"? What is your favorite quote from the books/movie?

Productive one day of writing! I wrote 2,144 words on Saturday. I took Sunday off of writing, though I meant to catch up on A-Z posts and didn't get a chance yet. I WILL! Again, sorry!
