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
