This struggle would be Santiago's last challenge. However, Santiago ended up tricking the marlin, which led him to see the marlin as very noble. Santiago thought of him as his equal, a sort of friend. ‘’ This fish is my friend too…’’ (75). Even though the marlin was indeed his friend as well as his equal, the old man knew he still needed to capture and kill the fish to regain his acceptance from the other fisherman.
However, the captain and the other crew members were struggling to swim to shore, but the captain unselfishly told the local man to help the drowning correspondent “but the captain waved him away, and sent him to the correspondent.:. “ A "brotherhood of men" has been formed of the four characters that were in horrible situation. The brotherhood they created gives them the strength to continue on. The way the men treated their brother makes us realize that nature might but strong and powerful but a true bond can cope with the
Suffering is an important role in his battle with the fish. It adds intensity to the struggle. The anguish of losing the fish to the sharks is surprisingly underplayed; this is a type of pain, which can be controlled by sheer willpower. What the old man tries to tell its readers is that physical pain and suffering which one gets when trying to achieve something is a respectable act and that these achievements require struggle and willpower to overcome the small losses in life. “I may not be as stong as I think, but I know many tricks and I have resolution.” One interesting question in The Old Man and the Sea is whether physical strength is as important as skill and experience.
The boy says this to Santiago reassure that is good at fishing. I think this proves he will wait very long to catch a fish because if that was me I would have given up after a day.One other thing this proves about him is he Strong willed to keep trying. Even though people don't believe in him because he is made fun of by the younger fisherman. To be a fishermen you have to be brave “The shark came in a rush and the old man hit him as he shut his jaws”(114).I think this shows how he is such a brave man, he is crazy to fight a shark. I have never heard of anyone trying to fight a shark.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest could be the story for any number of groups of people or person that sought to serve a purpose or achieve a goal in the sixties. This story is an anti-institutional counterculture type of a celebration of a rebellion or non-conformity against the “establishment”. The “establishment”, “government” or “the man” are all seemingly repressive “machines” to those affected by its rationale, as we find out in the novel sometimes the name is not quite so common and can be referred to as the “combine” as addressed by Chief Bromden the narrator of the story. This novel’s concepts parallel some of the social problems that were present in the sixties those being that of the relationship between institutional authority and the individual and/or subjected group’s desire for issues to be heard and their self-determination.

Society’s reasons are also often scientific. Loneliness is dangerous, is the generally agreed idea. Time spent alone is also time where she cannot control the patients, where there could think and maybe come to question her system. She clearly does not want that!

Mr. Darcy is telling Mr. Bingley that Elizabeth is not pretty so he has no interest in her. These words were caught by Elizabeth, which makes her think that Mr. Darcy has excessive pride and starts to hate him. This situation, where Elizabeth dislikes Mr. Darcy, could be prevented if Mr. Darcy had not say these words out loud. So people should be careful of what they say if they would like to prevent a hard situation. Because prejudice builds up as time goes on, it can be magnified if the situation is not clarified immediately.
And there are many tricks”(Hemmingway, 3). This shows the old man acknowledging that he is not the fisherman that he once was and how he will have to rely on his experience to reel in a prize of any sizable magnitude. After a day and a half of the fish dragging the old man out to sea, it is imperative that the old man eventually reel the fish in. If he does not eventually land the fish, he lets both himself down, as well as the boy. He is also proving that he does not need to new modern equipment such as a speedboat or radio, in order to land large fish and bring them
