Proverbs

J. R. R. Tolkien wrote in a letter to a friend, "The Lord of the Rings is of course a fundamentally religious and Christian work; unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision."

Christian truths may be discovered in Middle Earth myth. David Finnamore explores these truths and has compiled a handy list of "proverbs" from Tolkien's writing.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
