Elves are like trees, grounded and focused from the trunk down but graceful and agile on top.Orlando Bloom
Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
Elves are marvellous. They cause marvels.
Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
Elves are terrific. They beget terror.
The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.
Elves live in harmony with the world, and I try to do that.Orlando Bloom
Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Bronwyn: "Alfirin seeds."
Arondir: "It is a tradition among Elves. Before the battle begins, plant one."
Bronwyn: "New life, in defiance of death?"
Elves have forests to protect. Dwarves their mines. Men their fields of grain. Even trees have to worry about the soil beneath their roots. But we Harfoots have each other. We're safe.Dwarfs, Hobbits & HarfootsMarigold Brandyfoot in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Season 1
The doom of the Elves is to be immortal, to love the beauty of the world, to bring it to full flower with their gifts of delicacy and perfection, to last while it lasts, never leaving it even when ‘slain', but returning – and yet, when the Followers come, to teach them, and make way for them, to ‘fade' as the Followers grow and absorb the life from which both proceed. The Doom of Men is mortality, freedom from the circles of the world.J.R.R. Tolkien in The Silmarillion
