The best Quotes by Boromir

Boromir is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He was the heir of Denethor II (the 26th Steward of Gondor) and the elder brother of Faramir. In the course of the story Boromir joined the Fellowship of the Ring.

It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing.
One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. And the Great Eye is ever-watchful.

It is a gift. A gift to the foes of Mordor. Why not use this ring? Give Gondor the weapon of the enemy. Let us use it against him.
Gondor has no king. Gondor needs no king.

The crownless again shall be king.
