This is the scene that placed LOTR deep inside my heart… The frailty of man displayed, and the miracle of a changed heart and the tenderness that can be found between corrupt human beings.
‘i tried to take the ring from frodo, [boromir] said. ‘i am sorry. i have paid…. i have failed’
‘no!’ said aragorn. ‘you have conquered… be at peace…’
—chapter 1, the departure of boromir, the two towers, the lord of the rings, j.r.r tolkien
