From Enmity to Friendship: Part 1 - Mistakes
A plague on Dwarves and their stiff necks! 
I will say it again, though silently.  Because of him, I walk blindly through Lothlorien.  The law of the land forbids a dwarf to walk with open sight here.  Blindfolded, he must be.  Can he not understand this?  Vindictively, he demands me blindfolded, knowing I desire to see the magnificence of the Golden Wood. 
He rejoices that I cannot see Lothlorien.  He jealously deprives me her sight, denies me her beauty.  Yet, if he could see, what would he see? 
Nothing.  A Dwarf would not recognize beauty if it stood before him.
