Failed Foresight (Third Age- post-WotR) (Elrond, Faramir, Pippin)

After the War of the Ring, Elrond and Faramir discuss Pippin.


I had often been called farsighted, and yet -- and yet I would have sent the halfling home. Seeing him now, in the Tower garb, I wondered if the wisdom of Elrond had failed.

"You doubted him as well?" I turned and saw the Steward standing at my side, his eyes troubled.

"I did," I said after a moment. "I wished that he had returned to the Shire."

At that Faramir chuckled. "So did I. I would have spared him this." The weariness left his face. He placed his hand on my forearm. "But that was not for us to decide."
