Death is just another path, One that we all must take.

- J. R. R. Tolkien - Gandalf (Fictional character - The Lord of the Rings)



Quotes Meaning - Death is just another path, One that we all must take.


This quote is taken from the book The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and a movie by the same name.

The Orcs attack the next level of the city, and soldiers wait behind the gate, ready to attack. Gandalf and Pippin are sitting behind a short wall, watching and waiting.

Pippin: I didn’t think it would end this way. (Gandalf looks at him in surprise.)
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it.
