    Summary

    Aragorn: You have some skill with a blade.
    Eowyn: The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them. I fear neither death nor pain.
    Aragorn: What do you fear, my lady?
    Eowyn: A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.
    Aragorn: You are a daughter of kings, a shield maiden of Rohan. I do not think that will be your fate.

    "Look not to me for healing! I am a shieldmaiden and my hand is ungentle." ~ Éowyn

    "The reason of my waking mind tells me that great evil has befallen and we stand at the end of days. But my heart says nay; and all my limbs are light, and a hope and joy are come to me that no reason can deny." ~ Faramir

    "Éowyn, do you not love me?"
    Then the heart of Éowyn changed, or else at last she understood it. ....
    "I will be a shieldmaiden no longer .... I will be a healer, and love all things that grow and are not barren."
