The eyes were hollow and the carven beard was broken, but about the high stern forehead there was a coronal of silver and gold. A trailing plant with flowers like small white stars had bound itself across the brows as if in reverence for the fallen king.
Look, Sam! Look! The king has got a c r o w n again!

THE RACES AND PLACES OF MIDDLE EARTH → Hobbits
It has been remarked that a hobbits only real passion is for food. A rather unfair observation as we have also developed an interest in the brewing of ales and the smoking of pipe weed. But where our hearts truly lie is in peace and quiet and good tilled earth. For all hobbits share a love of things that grow.

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 they 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 shrill cry rang out in the night; and he felt a pain like a dart of poisoned ice pierce his left shoulder. Even as he swooned he caught, as through a swirling mist, a glimpse of Strider leaping out of the darkness with a flaming brand of wood in either hand. With a last effort Frodo, dropping his sword, slipped the Ring from his finger and closed his right hand tight upon it.”
***I know a lot of people love the Battle of Pelennor Fields, but I cannot even begin to describe how much I loved the confrontation between the Hobbits/Strider and the Nazgul at Weathertop. It was pure cinematic magic when Viggo Mortensen did that slow head turn towards the camera. This part amazes me to this day still. It really sealed Viggo Mortensen as the perfect Aragorn for me, to be honest!***
