That by itself is a very brave thing for a Hobbit to do, but it does not stop there. He rescues the Dwarves from becoming the supper of hungry spiders, he saves them from an Elven King, and he even steals from a dragon. When he found The Ring, he could have simply ran away. He could have crawled back into his Hobbit hole, made himself a cup of tea, and tried to pretend none of it ever happened. Instead, he went back to the Dwarves, kept his word, and helped them retrieve their treasure.
Bilbo is able to overcome his fear and how horrified he felt, when he beheld the spiders pinching and prodding his friends. Bilbo showed an extraordinary amount of bravery as well as cunning when he decided to take on the spiders to save the dwarves. The chapter “Spiders and Flies,” demonstrates how much Bilbo has grown “Already he was a very different hobbit from the one that had run left his house without a pocket-handkerchief from Bag-End long ago. He had not had a pocket-handkerchief for ages. He loosened his dagger in its sheath, tightened his belt, and went

A brave leader is supposed to take care of his people not just himself. Doing what is right, good, and helping others must override one’s fears and self-interest. Prospero inhumane nature manifests itself when he invites only his close friends to hide from the Red Death in his castellated abbey.

(62) This shows how much Phineas values his friendship with Gene, as he is willing to go to extreme extents to preserve it. However, Phineas' inability to admit the truth ultimately brought his own death.
It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero. Stanley’s expectations weren’t high considering that Zero had been away for days without food, water, or shelter, but when he overheard the Warden and Mr. Sir over talking about how they were going to delete all of Zero’s files and act like he never existed, he knew he made the right choice. Near the end of the book, my feelings about the lines above were reassured to be true when Stanley was officially released back to his lawyer and before leaving he said, “‘I can’t leave Hector.’” (Sachar 219). This caused Ms. Morengo, Stanley’s lawyer, to demand Zero’s files but then discovering that Camp Green Lake was a fraud, forcing it to be shut
