Or was he simply deluded and tricked by the overwhelming nature of Sauron? Whenever I think about this, I recall the scene from Orthanc, after being thoroughly defeated, Sarumen cant leave, but cant stay. Being trapped by his own dishonesty towards both Gandalf and company, and Sauron. I still think of this and wonder, was Saruman genuinely evil? Or was he rather deluded by the prospect of the ring, which he had studied about, coming into his power? Anyone?

“I have been a fierce bull and a yellow buck. I have been a boat upon the sea. I have been the foam of water. I have been a drop in the air. I have journeyed as high as an eagle. I have been at the throne of the distributor. I have stood high upon the white hill. I was fluent before being gifted with speech. I have been teacher to all intelligences. I have singly built the tower of Nimrhod. I am the tetragrammaton. I am a wonder whose origin is not know, and I shall be until the day of doom upon the earth…” -=I may be found merrymaking at <a href=>The Barrow Downs</a> or telling stories at <a href=>Sûldal's Keep</a> </p>
