Most quests are started with little chance that they will succeed; we usually only hear about the ones that are successful. When Thingol gave Beren his quest to retrieve the Silmaril from Morgoth's crown, he thought it was a surefire way of ridding a strong suitor from the life of his daughter, Lúthien. :elfroleeyes: Same when Elrond said Aragorn could only wed Arwen when he became King over both Arnor and Gondor. :sqroller: Finally, who in their right mind would believe a couple of hobbits could break into Mordor and toss Sauron's prize possession down the fiery tube right under the enemy's nose, or eye, as it were. :rolleyes: :superwow:
