It doesn’t matter how much you achieved when you were alive; but how you will be remembered after you die.  

Iluvatar’s Intervention

Iluvatar’s intervention does not remove the significance of the choices made by the Children of Iluvatar, but in many ways, it can redeem those choices. Or; to put it in another way, the characters are responsible only for their own choices and not for the outcome of those choices; they are responsible for the means, […]
