Frodo Baggins vs. Me

Abilities
Since Frodo is a Hobbit, he has some special abilities that I lack.

It’s good to keep in mind though, that for those who knew Frodo better, like Sam and Gandalf, he seemed almost translucent with a faint light shining from within.
    There is a Greek word called hupomone, patience, which describes Frodo better than any other words. More than patience, it also means endurance, steadfastness, constancy and perseverance. I would say that this word could be used to describe my good sides as well. At times, Frodo’s hope may falter but not his perseverance (after...
