"I didn't think it would end this way."
"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."
"What? Gandalf? See what?"
"White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise."
"Well, that isn't so bad."
"No. No, it isn't."
― Gandalf and Pippin (The Lord of the Rings)
