GALADRIEL: Gandalf the Grey did not pass the borders of this land. He has fallen into Shadow.
LEGOLAS: He was taken by both Shadow and Flame. A Balrog of Morgoth. For we went needlessly into the net of Moria.
GALADRIEL: Needless were none of the deeds of Gandalf in life. We do not yet know his full purpose. Do not let the great emptiness of Khazad-dum fill your heart, Gimli, son of Gloin. For the world has grown full of peril and in all lands love is now mingled with grief.
CELEBORN: What now becomes of this Fellowship? Without Gandalf, hope is lost.
GALADRIEL: The quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little, and it will fail to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains while the Company is true.
BOROMIR: My father is a noble man, but his rule is failing. And then our... our people lose faith. He looks to me to make things right, and I, I would do it. I would see the glory of Gondor restored. Have you ever seen it, Aragorn? The white tower of Ecthelion. Glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver. Its banners caught high in the morning breeze. Have you ever been called home by the clear ringing of silver trumpets?
ARAGORN: I have seen the White City. Long ago.
BOROMIR: One day, our paths will lead us there. And the tower guard shall take up the call: "The Lords of Gondor have returned."
GALADRIEL: I know what it was that you saw. For it is also in my mind. It is what will come to pass if you should fail. The Fellowship is breaking . It has already begun. He will try to take the Ring. You know of whom I speak. One by one it will destroy them all.
FRODO:If you ask it of me, I will give you the One Ring.
GALADRIEL: You offer it to me freely. I do not deny that my heart has greatly desired this. In the place of a Dark Lord, you would have a QUEEN! NOT DARK, BUT BEAUTIFUL AND TERRIBLE AS THE DAWN! TREACHEROUS AS THE SEA! STRONGER THAN THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH! ALL SHALL LOVE ME AND DESPAIR. I pass the test. I will diminish, and go into the West, and remain Galadriel.
FRODO:I cannot do this alone.
GALADRIEL: You are a Ring-bearer, Frodo. To bear a Ring of Power is to be alone.
GALADRIEL: This task was appointed to you. And if you do not find a way, no one will.
FRODO:Then I know what I must do. It's just, I'm afraid to do it.
GALADRIEL: Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.
