Harry Potter was saved by a mother's love more than once. Harry may not of had his mother but he had a lot of comfort from mother like figures. Whenever Harry needed comfort it was always from a mother figure.
Those who love Tolkien are almost always good people, honest people. Some are Hobbit-like and some are Elvish, but none are Orcish. Not all Tolkien haters are Orcs, but all Orcs are Tolkien haters. -- Peter Kreeft, The Philosophy of Tolkien
