Thank you brethil that is one of the quotes... [In reply to] Can't Post

But I was also thinking of this quote from the Book of Unfinished tales in the Chapter on the Istari Tolkien wrote this, "Indeed, of all the Istari, one only remained faithful, and he was the last-comer. For Radagast, the fourth, became enamoured of the many beasts and birds that dwelt in Middle-earth, and forsook Elves and Men, and spent his days among the wild creatures."- Page 390.

The context is that the Istari were given a specific mission, to battle Sauron and to unite the Children of Iluvatar against him, but the only one who did that was Gandalf. The rest failed.

I have read somewhere on these boards that some believe the two Blue Wizards are largely responsible for the spread of black magic out east, I am not sure though if that is just conjecture or if there is some evidence to back that up, it is an interesting thought though for sure.

Not all those who wander are lost
