We Are Become Middle Men

“We can scarce claim any longer the title of High. We are become Middle Men, of the Twilight, but with memory of other things. For… we now love war and valour as things good in themselves, both a sport and an end; and though we still hold that a warrior should have more skills and knowledge than only a craft of weapons and slaying, we esteem a warrior, nonetheless, above men of other crafts. Such is the need of our days.”

~ Faramir, Captain of Gondor.
