So, I am a stickler for quotes. There are certain ones that mean a lot to me because of the depth within them. It is why I watch Lord of the Rings so often, because I love the analogies and the characters in it. There is one quote that means so much to me that it actually helps me get out of my depression, as absurd as that sounds. "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 ending 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. A shadow, even darkness must pass, a new day will come, and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stay 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, that the folks in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn't, they kept going. Because they were holding onto something." "What are we holding onto Sam?" "That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it is worth fighting for." For all that I have gone through, that has really helped me realize that giving up is only the start to dying. That whole movie to me (because be it music, books or other, our world is bent on our own interpretations) is about overcoming darkness, and to me, depression is a darkness that is a battle to fight. But happiness is worth fighting for. That's the quote that I hold the closest to me. What about you? It can be goofy, deep, whatever.
