The Journal Entry Of The Old Man And The Sea

The novel tells a story about how the old fisherman Santiago struggled with the sea. Santiago gained a huge fish called Marlin after having drifted in the sea for 84 days.Unluckly,he encouted the sharks.eventually,Marlin left only the head,the tail and the spine.

The story is simple,but the meaning of reflection is profound.As the book says”A man can be destroyed but not defeated. ”In real life,many people are defeated but not be destroyed.It seemed that Santiago had failed,but in fact he won.Although he didn’t catch the entire Marlin,he got the courage,tenacity and respect of others.There are competitions and cooperations in our daily life,however,in many cases,it is too easy for us to lose confidence when we face adversity.We tend to find our shortcomings and ignore the advantafes.Instead of surrender,the brave old man had become more determined in his beliefs when the shark attack the boat time and time again.As he said:”Now there is no time to think of what you do not have,think of what you can do with what there is .”That makes sense,even though there exits subtle hope,we should try to do it,maybe good luck will appear.By constrast,if we lack of confidence in ourselves and unwilling to try, success will gradually fade out and we are unlikely to make friends with them.

The time when I first read the story,I couldn't understand why the author wrote the encounter of an ordinary people.Later I read three times again,I did understand the intention of the author.Not only soldiers could be a hero,but also an ordinary people whether young or old,poor or rich,man or woman,if he is full of confidence and never says give up,he can be a hero.The old man represents we ordinary people in daily life.Even though our ability is limited,we can go beyond ourselves and creat the miracles.
