Galadriel: "Without it, what am I to be?"
Elrond: "What you have always been. My friend."
Elrond: "You should not. But you can trust me. For I am no common Elf, but Elrond Halv-elven. And I see in Elves that which they cannot see in themselves."
Elrond: "No, indeed. It is hardly possible to separate you, even when he is summoned to a secret council and you are not."
