Samwise Gamgee, "A New Day Will Come"

Sam: It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer. 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.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.

- Samwise Gamgee, "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers"

Times are tough, no question, and it's going to get a lot worse- for a while. But as sure as you are
that the sun will come up tomorrow, believe, believe completely, that we WILL get through all this.
Be strong... - CP
