I think one of my favourite moments in BotFA is when Dain and the Iron Hills dwarves immediately prepare to fight the Orcs, whereas Thranduil and the elves are hesitating.  

In my opinion, that is the very thing that really sets the races apart.


- I can’t run any more, I fall before you. Here I am, I have nothing left. Though I try to forget, you’re all that I am. Take me home, I’m through fighting it.
