You could put Húrin right up there with Fingolfin and Beren for openly defying MOrgoth to his face.
Lúthien, not Beren. Beren cowered under Morgoth's crown whilst the Lady defied Morgoth.
It takes a woman to do a man's job.
But of course, it was Beren who had to cut the Silmaril from Morgoth's crown. Lúthien couldn't dirty her hands now, could she? Leave the dirty handwork to the men.
Come to think of it, Beren was lucky Lúthien didn't dump him for cowardice, Four Feathers
-style. Guess that happened because the alternative -the minstrel Daeron- was nothing to write home about either.
I agree with Vir when he mentions immortality, living forever might get a tad old, but i could probably handle it a lot better with all those fine lady elves never growing old on me.
Fine lady elves?! You can compare living in the Undying Lands with living in a Barbiehouse for ever. So shiny, so glossy, so utterly insipid.
I take a Shieldmaiden of Rohan any day. That is, if she wouldn't cut me in half upon touching her.
Give up the Halfring, she-elf...
