Two Towers poster of Sam and Frodo in Osgiliath Excellent Condition
This is a moment in The Lord of the Ring: The Two Towers that captures the heart and will of Sam Gamgee as he comes to realize his purpose in the Quest of the Fellowship. After Frodo and Sam are weary from struggling, Sam’s famous words turn the tide for them. Printed on the poster:
“Those were the stories that stayed 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. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something.’
‘What are we holding on to Sam?’
‘There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.'”
