Theme of the Silmarillion Can't Post

Now that the Silmarillion discussion is over, I think that I have spotted a theme running through the novel which I have thought of before. That theme is mistakes. I think every character makes them from the highest to the lowest, good or bad. From the Valar been outwitted by Morgoth for long periods, down to the likes of Turin the tale is littered with them and with those in between. Plus of course, Morgoth and Sauron make one or two of their own!
