why i love aragorn

[Eomer] "The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken the the long ages ere our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such a time?"

"As he ever has judged," said Aragorn. "Good and evil have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

Tolkien, The Two Towers, III.ii
I just started rereading TTT, and it is even better than I remembered. *throws on more fuel*
I don't think it's hard to believe because you can put so much more into a book than you can on a movie screen. The man does a great job of bringing him to life though!
Yeah--I'm glad they swapped out whoever they originally had for the part, because there's no way he could have done as excellent a job as Viggo.
