Development[ edit ] The Book of Lost Tales[ edit ] In The Book of Lost Tales the very few Dwarves who appear are portrayed as evil beings, employers of Orc mercenaries and in conflict with the Elves —who are the imagined "authors" of the myths, and are therefore biased against Dwarves. Here the Dwarves became occasionally comedic and bumbling, but largely seen as honourable, serious-minded, but still portraying some negative characteristics such as being gold-hungry, extremely proud and occasionally officious. Tolkien was now influenced by his own selective reading of medieval texts regarding the Jewish people and their history. The Dwarf calendar invented for The Hobbit reflects the Jewish calendar in beginning in late autumn.
The whole Universe one system of Society.
Nothing made wholly for itself, nor yet wholly for another. The happiness of animals mutual. Reason or Instinct operates alike to the good of each individual. Reason or Instinct operates also to Society in all animals.
How far Society carried by Instinct;--how much farther by reason. Of that which is called the state of nature. Reason instructed by Instinct in the invention of the arts;--and in the forms of Society. Origin of political societies;--origin of Monarchy;--patriarchal government. Origin of true Religion and Government, from the same principle of Love;--origin of Superstition and Tyranny, from the same principle of Fear.
The influence of Self-love operating to the social and public good. Restoration of true Religion and Government on their first principle. Various forms of each, and the true end of all.
But most be present, if we preach or pray.
Look round our world; behold the chain of love Combining all below and all above. See plastic Nature working to this end, The single atoms each to other tend, Attract, attracted to, the next in place, Form'd and impell'd its neighbour to embrace.
See matter next, with various life endued, Press to one centre still, the gen'ral good; See dying vegetables life sustain, See life dissolving vegetate again. All forms that perish other forms supply By turns we catch the vital breath, and dieLike bubbles on the sea of Matter borne, They rise, they break, and to that sea return.
Nothing is foreign; parts relate to whole; One all-extending, all-preserving, soul Connects each being, greatest with the least; Made beast in aid of man, and man of beast; All serv'd all serving: Had God, thou fool!
Who for thy table feeds the wanton fawn, For him as kindly spreads the flowery lawn. Is it for thee the lark ascends and sings? Joy tunes his voice, joy elevates his wings. Is it for thee the linnet pours his throat?
Loves of his own and raptures swell the note. The bounding steed you pompously bestride Shares with his lord the pleasure and the pride. Is thine alone the seed that strews the plain? The birds of Heav'n shall vindicate their grain. Thine the full harvest of the golden year?Facets of Metta by Sharon Salzberg.
