Great distinction

The ones who are insatiable about knowledge wind up in trouble. People like Gandalf who seek wisdom instead make out okay (alright, forget that Moria bridge thing). As a contrast, Saruman seemed to forever thirst after wisdom, such as asking Treebeard all he knew, using the Palantir to find information, and studying the archives in Minas Tirith, but Gandalf sought wisdom and understanding. I would say they're equally intelligent, but had profoundly different intellectual leanings.
