Book/Source: LotR, probably movie-verse
Disclaimer: First there was Tolkien, then there was New Line - the world is theirs not mine

They keep close and share each other’s council. What one thinks, the other speaks; where one leads the other keeps his company; two minds, one thought, one dream even.

They have ever shut me out; they guard themselves against my advice when I only wish to help. I know better than they the devious ways of this world and yet they keep me from their confidences. Duty is not enough, I want their love… and yet… they shut me out.

I am their father, their love is my right, but they deny me… so, I will have obedience - without question.
