The theme of “The Old man and the Sea” is to never give up even when things are going bad. One can still be hopeful, confident and self-assured in their ability to be able to achieve what they want to achieve even through hard times.
Hemingway states in “The Old Man and the Sea” “I feel confident today" (pg. 6 PDF)
Being such a short quote, it is still very important. The old man had just been woken by Manolin to get ready to head out to sea. This quote is showing that the old man is still confident in his ability to catch a fish even after 84 days without success.
Hemingway's purpose for writing "The Old Man and the Sea" was to entertain to the audience.
