Legends - a retelling of history
"Legends are lessons. They ring with truth." -Queen Elinor, in Brave (a Pixar-Disney film)
"'Haflings!' laughed the Rider that stood beside Eomer. 'Haflings! But they are only a little people in old songs and children's tales out of the North. Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?'
'A man may do both,' said Aragorn. 'For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time.'" - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
Based on fact, legends reflect reality as it was, and sometimes as it is.
Learn from legends or else "History repeats itself."
