I am intrigued and terrified. At once.
Slaughterhouse V by Kurt Vonnegut
– The Silmarillion, JRR Tolkien
Perhaps not as heroic as Frodo's journey, nor as romantic as Aragon's and Arwen's, nor as majestic and legendary as Beren and Luthien; yet the tale of Hurin and Morwen has ever been the most beautiful in its tragedy for me. They fought and lost as so many did in Middle-earth and yet they are triumphant. I can only hope I am as victorious.
