Elves like to live among the stars. They find that forests open the eyes to natural beauty such as the stars. When looking upon a map, you can see that the elves inhabit most of the forested area, and they do little change to it to make it their home.
Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the Age of Men comes crashing down; but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!
