  • “I can do it as long as he can, he thought” (14). 
  • “He saw the white naked line of his backbone and the dark mass of the head with the projecting bill and all the nakedness between” (34).
  • By going eight-four days without a fish he could've became very discouraged, but he stayed confident and kept trying. He wants all of us to know to keep going and don't get discouraged
  • When he hooked the huge marlin, he was determined to catch it and wasn't going to give up no matter what. By saying this he wants us to know to never give up no matter how hard it is
