An article written about symbolism in The Hobbit on Litcharts.com presents this idea like so, “...Sting symbolizes Bilbo’s changing nature and proves that ordinary things -- a dagger or a hobbit -- are full of surprises.” (The Hobbit Symbols) . Throughout a larger part of the book, Gandalf assures Thorin and the dwarves that Bilbo is the right man for the job. This is because Gandalf can recognize potential, and that is exactly what he saw in Bilbo. Time after time, even when it seems all hope is lost for Bilbo, Gandalf keeps his faith in him where the dwarves do not. A prime example of this is when the party escapes from the goblins and discover that Bilbo is missing.
He is asked one day by the magnificent wizard Gandalf to come along with a group of 13 dwarves and they took plain old Bilbo on a adventure. On this journey he ends up being a leader and a great expert finding clues the dwarves missed. Two changes Jackson made was Gollum and his personality and who he is, also when they describe how he is feels when bilbo takes the ring from him, which are both ineffective for different reasons. One difference in the movie gollum has two personalities but in the book he would just answer himself. It was a good idea to change this scene because it had more action and it was funny.
Bilbo’s Transformation/Maturation Some people say that people never change, while others believe that if given the chance, they will. In this case, J.R.R. Tolkien gives the character Bilbo Baggins the chance to change dramatically in his book The Hobbit. Bilbo undergoes many significant changes in his personality as a result of engaging in Gandalf's journey with the dwarves. The most important transformations include Bilbo going from cowardly to brave, from being ridiculed to respected and from being helpless to resourceful.
In The Scarlet Ibis, the author revealed finally the real feelings of Brother toward his brother Doodle.

The last scene in the short story is so tragic. The scene is portrayed as Brother returned back to Doodle who was found dead, having bled from the mouth and his neck is covered in blood.

The first example is Boo Radley. In the novel, Boo Radley isn’t seen until the very end but we hear about him throughout the entire novel. The whole Radley family suffers social prejudice because Boo hasn't been seen in years, and people start making rumors of what happened. According to the rumors, he is a scary guy that went crazy a while ago. But at the end of the novel, we see that he is a kind man that has been shut up his entire life and doesn’t like being in the spotlight (both literally and metaphorically).
Penelope asks to speak with the beggar, but Odysseus puts her off until nightfall” (Book 17, Italic) Odysseus is shown to overcome his pride while he was a beggar and during his stay with the Calypso. For example, back at home he was always treated like the king of Ithaca but he becomes a beggar overthrowing his pride of a rich king. He only cares for his family now and will do anything now after this long journey to be back with his wife and son ruling his kingdom again. For this reason, he accepts that he is at an equal level of pride and humility.
What such a figure represents is the benign, protecting power of destiny.” It’s fairly obvious that Bilbo’s assistance is the wizard Gandalf. In Chapter 1, Gandalf sends Bilbo on a journey and assists him throughout the majority of it. Even though Gandalf doesn’t accompany the group throughout the entire journey, he helps them accomplish their first challenges. For example, when Bilbo and his company were captured by the goblins and trolls, Gandalf uses his magical abilities to help protect Bilbo and the dwarves. Without his help, surely Bilbo and his dwarves would have died.
