understanding, making, and healing, to preserve all things unstained

Elrond concerting the three rings:

They are not idle. But they were not made as weapons of war or conquest: that is not their power. Those who made them did not desire strength or domination or hoarded wealth, but understanding, making, and healing, to preserve all things unstained.

From The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien.
