"Don't eat yellow snow"

Sacrifice is a theme which runs through the works.
I don't just mean one's life.

No, I mean sacrifices such as Aragorns years in the wilderness.

or

Well..... who else has given up something, as dear as life ?

What? No lemon ice?

Sacrifice?
How about Eowyn in her service to Theoden..."a wild spirit caged..."

Down here it's don't sit on yellow sand.

Faramir to sacrafice himself if needed to appease a thankless father.

shang alang a ding dong

How about Elros.

He chose mortality...I never worked out why ?

I bet that question , kept Ar-Phazron awake.

Why would a blessed immortal give up his grace ?

Which leads me to Elrond.

Although I don't think he would have stopped his daughter from marrying Aragorn. And there was a Thingolish challlenge to Aragorn....he supported Arwen in her choice

I would say Frodo.

He had no wife, no children, no personal life really. Sad.

'He chose mortality...I never worked out why?'

Perhaps Elros Halfelven strongly considered that the tales of the Elves might contain the escape from Deathlessness.


'Fairy-stories are made by men not by fairies. The Human-stories of the elves are doubtless full of the Escape from Deathlessness.' JRRT, On Fairy-Stories

Luthien escaped so, it might be said. Depends upon one's point of view here.

Maybe we ought to ask, "What did the Elves think of Men?"
