«Hoom, hum, I have not troubled about the Great Wars», said Treebeard;

«they mostly concern Elves and Men.

That is the business of Wizards: Wizards are always troubled about the future.

I do not like worrying about the future.

I am not altogether on anybody’s side,

because nobody is altogether on my side, if you understand me:

nobody cares for the woods as I care for them, not even Elves nowadays.»


«And there are some things, of course,

whose side I’m altogether not on;

I am against them altogether.»



I am on nobody’s side because you are both wrong.
