Not spoken to Sam.

Yes...

“How bright your garden looks!”, said Gandalf to Bilbo.

Oh, my Lord.

That would be a scream.
“There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”

OK, quote.
Please make everything mistake. Please proceed.
The original is a simple, single sentence.
