“Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back. But I would not have come, had I known the danger of light and joy. Now I have taken my worst wound in this parting” — Gimli

“Alas for us all! Such is the way of it: to find and lose. But I count you blessed, Gimli son of Glóin: for your loss you suffer of your own free will, and you might have chosen otherwise.” — Legolas

― J.R.R. Tolkien, “Farewell to Lórien”
