Re: Man vs. Elf
Man if you want to look like gandalf
Elf if you want to be mistaken for a lady while wearing your "dress"
Alaek: elven guardian of Brandywine
"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Númenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise" quote by Faramir
