Tolkien quote of the day:

The Ring-bearer is setting out on the Quest of Mount Doom. On him alone is any charge laid: neither to cast away the Ring, nor to deliver it to any servant of the Enemy nor indeed to let any handle it, save members of the Company and the Council, and only then in gravest need. The others go with him as free companions, to help him on his way. You may tarry, or come back, or turn aside into other paths, as chance allows. The further you go, the less easy will it be to withdraw; yet no oath or bond is laid on you to go further than you will. For you do not yet know the strength of your hearts, and you cannot foresee what each may meet upon the road.

Elrond, as the company was ready to depart

Written for the LOTR GenFic Community September 2011 "Hit the Books" challenge in which we were given a title of a famous book to use as our title. This is from a book by C.S.

Faramir is also in the story, not so much a physical presence, but he is most definitely here.
