"Frodo: But he was destroyed. Sauron was destroyed."
"Gandalf: No, Frodo. The spirit of Sauron endured. His life force is bound to the Ring, and the Ring survived. Sauron has returned."
― The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
"Maybe you could fight the mark for years. Maybe centuries, like Cain did. But you can't fight it forever. And when you turn, and you will turn, Sam, and everyone you know, everyone you love, they could be long dead. Everyone except me. I'm the only one who will have to watch you murder the world. So if there's even a small chance that we can save you, I won't let you out of this room."
― Castiel to Dean Winchester (Supernatural)
