“”Well, you have now, Sam, dear Sam,’ said Frodo, and he lay back in Sam’s gentle arms, closing his eyes, like a child at rest when night-fears are driven away by some loved voice or hand.”
“I made a promise, Mr. Frodo, a promise. Don’t you leave him Samwise Gamgee, and I don’t mean to.”
“Come, Mr. Frodo!” he cried. “I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well.”
Because when I think of friends in literature or cinema, the first person that came to mind was Samwise Gamgee from the Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkein. Because I couldn’t pick just one quote that could fully encompass what a loving friend he truly was (not that three is any better). Because I know Linda will forgive me for breaking her rules. 🙂
Happy Wednesday everyone!
