"The Ranger", by Matt Stewart.
«Lonely men are we, Rangers of the wild, hunters – but hunters ever of the servants of the Enemy; for they are found in many places, not in Mordor only. ”Strider” am I to one fat man who lives within a day´s march of foes that would freeze his heart, or lay his little town in ruin, if he were not guarded ceaselessly. Yet we would not have it otherwise. If simple folk are free from care and fear, simple they will be, and we must be secret to keep them so. That has been the task of my kindred, while the years have lengthened and the grass has grown.» (The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien)
