  • Person vs. Person

  • Person vs. Nature
  • I have no respect for these blood thirsty beasts.
  • Person vs. Self
  • It was my own fault.
  • Person vs. Person
  • "Fish I love you and respect you very much. But I will kill you before this day ends"
  • Person vs. Nature
  • "When the fish had been hit it was as though he himself had been hit"
  • Person vs. Self
  • "I shouldn't have gone out so far, fish. Neither for you nor for me. I'm sorry fish."
  • Santiago treats the Marlin as if it is another human. Santiago loves and respects the Marlin, but nonetheless there is an endless battle between the Marlin and Santiago with neither wanting to give up.
  • While the Sharks/Nature did not directly attack Santiago, the old man felt so responsible and connected to the Marlin, that when the shark attacked the Marlin it was as if Santiago himself was being attacked.
  • While Santiago was apologizing to the fish in this quote, Santiago was also apologizing to himself. At this point Santiago realizes that his own pride had caused his own defeat, and the defeat of the Marlin.
