The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) is a fantasy directed by Peter Jackson based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien about an unlikely hero, a young Hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), who sets out on a quest along with eight companions, including the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen), to destroy a ring that can give its owner the power to enslave the world.

Life Lesson:

Be compassionate — show mercy — towards those who offend you.

Movie Scene:

Frodo: “There’s something down there.”

Gandalf: “It’s Gollum.”

Frodo: “Gollum?”

Gandalf: “He’s been following us for three days. He hates and loves the ring as he hates and loves himself. He will never be rid of his need for it.”

Frodo: “It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill him when he had the chance.”

Gandalf: “Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be eager to deal out death and judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
