“It doesn’t matter if you’re big or small,
What’s in our hearts is the measure of us all.“
– J.W. Noble

Relating the quote to the story
It is not the size of a person that matters. What really matters is how big a heart you have, how kind, brave and helpful you can be. Boris is bigger than Fergus, but that doesn’t make him braver or kinder.
