Oh, be still, mah heart...... I absolutely fell in LOVE with Bofur. He was just so sweet and optimistic. For some reason, as soon as he spoke, I kinda related him to this quote, and I don't know why.... "The loneliest people are the kindest, the saddest people smile the brightest, the most damaged people are the wisest, All because they do not wish to see people suffer the same way they do." .....I guess I just kinda relate to him someone that expects the downs with the ups, and still manages to make a smile at the end. Hes not afraid to seem a fool, or to help a pour soul get back on their feet, dust them off ,and set them on the right again. Hes not a noble like Fili, Kili, or Thorin, and not near as good looking as them either, but for some reason he holds a special place in my heart as a truly kind soul.
