Gandalf the White:
All has turned to vain ambition! He would even use his grief as a cloak! A thousand years this city has stood. Now, at the whim of a madman, it will fall. And the White Tree, the Tree of the King, will never bloom again.

Pippin Took:
Why are they still guarding it then?

Gandalf the White:
They guard it because they have hope. A faint and fading hope, that one day it will flower. A King will come, and this city will be as it once was. Before it fell into decay. The old wisdom born out of the West was forsaken. Kings made tombs more splendid than the houses of the living, and counted the names of their descent dearer than the names of their sons. Childless lords sat in aged halls, musing on heraldry, or in high cold towers asking questions of the stars. And so, the people of Gondor fell into ruin. The line of Kings failed. The White Tree withered. The rule of Gondor was given over to lesser men.

Pippin Took:
[staring towards Mordor] Mordor.

Gandalf the White:
Yes, there it lies. This city has dwelt ever in the sight of its shadow.

Pippin Took:
A storm is coming.

Gandalf the White:
This is not the weather of the world. This is a devise of Sauron's making, a broil of fume he sends ahead of his host. The Orcs of Mordor have no love of daylight. So he covers the face of the sun to ease their passage along the road to war. When the shadow of Mordor reaches this city, it will begin.

Pippin Took:
Well, Minas Tirith, very impressive. So where are we off to next?

Gandalf the White:
Oh, it's too late for that, Peregrin. There's no leaving this city. Help must come to us.
