"He sees what kind of man he wants to be, too. He wants to be strong, and brave, and a hero, but not the kind that rides around on a white horse. He wants to be Samwise Gamgee. It’s hard, though, to reconcile the desire to be a humble gardener, when you have a humble gardener. Or, actually, a lawn crew. It’s also hard to be simple when you’re kind of thinky. But he’s got the worrying down pat and the being small and dark and solid (maybe a little too solid he admits—his mom says he’s just padding for a growth spurt, though). If he’s honest, part of the appeal is also having someone tell him what to do. And right now, he imagines what Mr. Frodo would tell him to do, girds his loins and makes the decision to go about the dangerous business of stepping out his door.”
