He is so poor that he sometimes does not even have food. Manolin brings him his supper, given to him by the owner of the Terrace (19-20). On the eighty-fifth day, Santiago goes far out into the Gulf Stream away from all the other fisherman to catch a big fish. He is “alone and out of sight of land” when he catches “the biggest fish that he [has] ever seen and bigger than he [has] ever heard of” (63). To prevent the giant marlin from getting away, Santiago holds onto the line using only his back, arms, and hands.
The line between sky and water narrowed and widened, and fell and rose. A man likes to take a bath in a bigger area than this boat could provide.”(1) The narrator's’ thoughts on how the boat is much to small for the four men and the rough sea furthers the extremities of their situation as now, not only do they not have a functioning steamboat with all of its amenities and crew, but now they are too many for the little boat in the sea. The oiler and the correspondent rowed the boat as the cook worked to shovel water overboard to prevent capsizing; meanwhile, the

On his journey he talks about many things, including the sea turtles; which he admires very much. At the beginning of his journey, Santiago is optimistic and has good mental and physical health. At the end of his journey, however he is beaten down both mentally and physically.
The universal theme that goes with The Old Man and the Sea is Mans struggle with nature and life. The old man was trying to fight a battle that might have killed him since his pride kept him from accepting defeat, and going back home empty-handed, because of his old age he felt like if he could not catch the marlin than he might have died because he thought that would make him a failure. Not to himself but to Manolin (the boy that he would fish with and would speak to about baseball.) The way that most people can relate to this is that, people do not want to let someone down that look up to them or see them as a role model. In the novel The Old Man and the Sea the way that nature is used is that it does not fight against the old man but it instead is used in the way that it shows man relationship with nature, by showing that even while he was out in the sea far from land he was still given nutrients to eat, like dolphin and shrimp.
However, his inability to see past the witches’ equivocations—even as he utilizes the practice himself—ultimately leads to his downfall. Sometimes, equivocations in Macbeth are meant kindly, as when Ross tries to spare Macduff’s feelings by telling him that his wife and son are “well.” Macduff initially takes this to mean that his family is alive and healthy, but Ross means that they are dead and in heaven. More often than not, though, such ambiguous statements lead to harm. The witches’ deceptive prophecies are perhaps the most destructive instances of
Whether he follows his faith religiously is to be determined, but nevertheless he believes this quote to the end. The excerpt states his “blindness” and “errors” ended due to these words. The allusion of Lazarus signifies to the audience what is about to happen to Carton. Even though Carton will die physically, he will still live with his Lord. This provides some reassurance to him that his actions will not be done with him being damned to Hell, but rather cherished in Heaven and alive in

So he was willing to break back into the town just to see Juliet and he hasn 't even know this girl a week long. They also both come to the conclusion that if they aren 't able to live together, they shouldn 't be alive at all. This is just proving that they don 't think upon their actions and they just rush to ideas. It also shows being irrational would actually be the death of them.

However, I caught a 42 inch shark in Florida (saltwater) which took me 20 minutes to reel in, and that is considered a small fish. They both have unique characteristics that make them completely different things. I’m going to prove that all fishing is not the same, saltwater and freshwater fishing are different sports based on dangerousness, cost, species, bait, and boat type. Most people assume fishing is a safe and easy hobby, however, fishing can actually be a dangerous activity. Saltwater fish have the potential to pull you into the water, bite you, or even sting you.
Rashid has almost everything, including the admiration of many and a gorgeous place to stay for the night, but without his love, nothing can make him happy. Since Soraya left him, his heart is empty so he cannot do what he does best; share stories.
