The Age of Men is over. The Time of the Orc has come.

Gothmog

Gollum: It's the only way. Go in, or go back.
Frodo: I cannot go back.

This task was appointed to you, Frodo of the Shire. If you do not find a way, no one will.

Galadriel

This will be the end of Gondor as we know it. Here the hammer-stroke will fall hardest.

Gandalf

[after being crowned King] This day does not belong to one man but to all. Let us together rebuild this world that we may share in the days of peace.

[to the Hobbits] My friends... you bow to no one.

Aragorn

Sam: It must be getting near tea-time, leastways in decent places where there *is* still tea-time.
Gollum: We're not *in* decent places.

Smeagol: ...and take it for ME.
Gollum: For us.
Smeagol: Yes, we... we meant for us.

Aragorn: We have time. Every day Frodo moves closer to Mordor.
Gandalf: Do we know that?
Aragorn: What does your heart tell you?
Gandalf: That Frodo is alive. Yes. Yes, he's alive.

Sam: I heard it from his own mouth! He means to murder us! Gollum: Never! Smeagol wouldn't hurt a fly!

[on the slopes of Mount Doom] Then let us be rid of it... once and for all... C'mon Mr. Frodo... I can't carry for you... but I can carry you! C'mon!

Sam

Eowyn: The city has falled silent. There is no warmth left in the sun.
Faramir: [approaching her] It is the damp of the first spring rain.
Eowyn: [looks up at him]
Faramir: I do not believe this darkness will endure.
