J.R.R. Tolkien.

i'm curious, what does this mean exactly? Consider

Context of the quote would be Frodo wishing that Bilbo would have kill Gollum when he met him if I remember right. Gandalf then speaks his piece and considering role of Gollum in the book he is more than right.

I think it mean that one should not kill other person if not in self defence and that showing mercy is good in the long run. After all mercy being one of first acts of Bilbo when he get the Ring was his saving grace which I think also was said by Gandalf.

IRL it would be about opposing the death penalty I would say.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Happy to help.

I just knew that reading Lord of the Rings once a year will prove useful Smile
