Steward 守護者

甘道夫:「我不統治任何疆域,剛鐸或任何其他大或小的疆域。但以世間此刻的情勢,所有處在險境中的珍貴事物,都是我守護的對象。就我來說,剛鐸可能會灰飛煙滅,但在今晚之後,若有任何事物仍能生長,或在未來日子裡開花結果,我的任務就沒有全然失敗。因為我也是個守護者。你不知道嗎?」–J.R.R. 托爾金《魔戒》

“The rule of no realm is mine, neither of Gondor nor any other, great or small. But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail of my task, though Gondor should perish, if anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bear fruit and flower again in days to come. For I also am a steward. Did you not know?”  — J.R.R. Tolkien
