To recover the greatness of things past — within The Lord of the Rings, to save Middle-earth and their beloved Shire — the hobbits of the fellowship must overcome complacency and fear, and aspire to the heroism of the other races. Frodo and Sam, of course, do so in finally fulfilling their quest to carry the Ring to Mount Doom.

Galadriel reaches to Frodo through a dream in his battle with Shelob, and Aragorn to him on Caradhras: the support system and unity of races is thereby made clear.
