“Do you feel any need to leave the Shire now — now that your wish to see them has come true already?” he [Frodo Baggins] asked.
“Yes, sir.  I don’t know how to say it, but after last night I feel different.  I seem to see ahead, in a kind of way.  I know we are going to take a very long road, into darkness;  but I know I can’t turn back.  It isn’t to see Elves now, nor dragons, nor mountains, that I want — I don’t rightly know what I want:  but I have something to do before the end and it lies ahead, not in the Shire.  I must see it through, sir, if you understand me.”  [Samwise Gamgee (“Sam the Brave”)]
