Tolkien quote of the day:

Wizards are always troubled about the future. I do not like worrying about the future. I am not altogether on anybody's side, because nobody is altogether on my side, if you understand me: nobody cares for the woods as I care for them, not even Elves nowadays. Still, I take more kindly to Elves than to others: it was the Elves that cured us of dumbness long ago, and that was a great gift that cannot be forgotten, though our ways have parted since. And there are some things, of course, whose side I am altogether not on; I am against them altogether: these – burárum' (he again made a deep rumble of disgust)' – these Orcs, and their masters.

Treebeard holds forth, TTT

'It is not said that Aredhel was wholly unwilling, nor that her life in Nan Elmoth was hateful to her for many years.' - The Silmarillion The story can be read as an extra chapter of Sad But True, but can also be viewed on its own.
