40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
His Last Words
Aragorn’s final words to Arwen were a celebration of his life. He did not mourn his passing. Instead, he suggested that he was glad to have lived the full life that he had lived. “In sorrow, we must go, but not in despair,” he said. “Behold! We are not bound forever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory. Farewell!”
Aragorn knew that his death would not be the end. He would live on in Arwen’s memory, and meet her again someplace else. Death is not the end, but a new beginning, and not a moment of tragedy.
