This quote shows that Odyseus uses his intelligence to protect himself from his enemies, and to think of a way to convince penelope that it is him, and not anyone fake.

Frodo possesses all of the characteristics of an epic hero because he is also an unlikely hero. “‘I cannot keep the Ring and stay here, I ought to leave Bag End, leave the shire, leave everything and go away.’”(Tolkien 61) This shows how much Frodo cares about the shire and the hobbits.
