"No need for a leader?" she echoed. "This talk is foolishness. Without a leader to unite us under a common goal, we will act independently of one another.

This is why a leader is not only a good idea; a leader is absolutely necessary."
Nodding to Elrond, as if to signify that he should speak once more, she sat and resumed her silence.
