WHO: Gandalf, talking to Pipping in the book “The Return of the King”
CONTEXT: Pippin swore allegiance to the Steward of Gondor, Denethor. Later, he asked Gandalf is he had done the right thing. Gandalf said that it was well done, and that he did not stop Pippin from doing so, even though he would not have recommended the action in the first place.
