The Wise among Men say: “We were not made for death, nor born ever to die.
Death was imposed upon us.” And behold! the fear of it is with us always.
'All ye Elves deem that we die swiftly by our true kind. That we are brittle and brief, and ye are strong and lasting. We may be “Children of Eru”, as ye say in your lore; but we are children to you also: to be loved a little maybe, and yet creatures of less worth, upon whom ye may look down from the height of your power and your knowledge, with a smile, or with pity, or with a shaking of heads.'
