Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.
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 there you see it.
Pippin: What, Gandalf? See what?
Gandalf: White shores..., and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: Well, that's not so bad.
Gandalf: No. No, it isn't.
