yeah, I heard that from the movie Troy...said by the lovely Brad pitt.

woops my bad, i did think of lord of the rings when you said elfs...lol im a little slow sometimes..:0p

Lord of the Rings... sorry, I thought everyone in the free world knew that :)

lol so what is LOTR?

yes, I recognized it. The words looked especially handsome, so I knew it was Brad Pitt that spoke them.

that's a good question and an interesting quote. the one i picked as you probably may know was from the movie Troy when achilles was talking to Bresius. I love that quote.

That's a great quote. I remember someone saying something similar in relation to LOTR, they were talking about how elves live forever and men's lives were so short...When men and elves fought side by side, which is more tragic? An elf losing his immortal life or a man losing his already short life?
