  • The boy represent the family he has. Manolin never gives up on him and Santiago doesn't give up on Manolin."'I could go with you again. We've made some money.' "No," the old man said. "You're with a lucky boat. stay with them."(pg.1). This shows how Manolin never gave up on Santiago like others did, and Santiago really cared about Santiago well being.
  • Santiago arm wrestling represents the manliness he had in his young years. In Old Man In The Sea it says, "They had gone one day and one night...Each one was trying to force the other's hand down onto the table". This shows how Santiago will never forget how he accomplished something so hard.

In Old Man In The Sea. "but he untied the harpoon rope from the bitt, passed it through the fishes gills and out his jaw...". Killing the fish made Santiago feel very accomplished.
