Samwise the Brave by aragorn
Sam did not wait to wonder what was to be done, or whether he was brave, or loyal, or filled with rage.
He sprang forward with a yell, and seized his masters sword in his left hand. Then he charged.
No onslaught more fierce was ever seen in the savage world of beasts, where some desperate small
creature armed with little teeth, alone, will spring uppon a tower of horn and hide
that stands above its fallen mate." The Two Towers pg. 398
