Though our own hearts break, we cannot flinch; these are new times, sir. There is a misty plot afoot so subtle we should be criminal to cling to old respect and ancient friendships.

Isildur was marching north along the east banks of the River , and near the Gladden Fields he was waylaid by the Orcs of the Mountains, and almost all his folk were slain.

Think of a woman by the side of a dying sister, or a sick child, or a sorrowing friend, or a broken-hearted and broken-spirited man, without a word of heaven in her mouth without so much as the ability to whisper "Our Father," or even to point her finger hopefully towards the stars.
