Boromir had always been careful about making promises to his brother. ‘I will try my best...’ to bring back a treat from the kitchens; to persuade their father to let Faramir come hunting; to do all the little things that showed his brotherly love. He did his best... but never promised.

As a child, Faramir came to believe that ‘Boromir’s best’ was as good as a pledge and was content.

The morning they parted at Osgiliath, he had said, “Come back safely... ”

“I will try my best, little brother...” Boromir replied.

It was the only time he broke his word.
