C.S. Lewis might as well have written this regarding Bombadil.

"No natural feelings are high or low, holy or unholy, in themselves. They are all holy when God's hand is on the rein. They all go bad when they set up on their own and make themselves false gods."

From the Weight of Glory, page 100, and found in a student's term paper.
