Frodo's sword drops

Sam's "Speech" 1:33 mp3 file
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 on to, Sam?
That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

I wonder if we'll ever be put into songs or tales - Sam

You left out one of the chief characters, Samwise the Brave! I want to hear more about Sam.  Frodo wouldn't have gotten far without Sam - Frodo

Now Mr Frodo you shouldn't make fun, I was being serious - Sam
So was I - Frodo
