Transcript of The Old Man and the Sea

Santiago's Traits The Old Man and the Sea Patience Love Strength Courage Santiago demonstrates patience with the fish throughout the entire novel. He lets this fish tow him out to sea, all the while, not letting this fish out of his sight. I chose this specific video to demonstrate patience because this man is doing all sorts of random things, all the while the other guy keeps his cool and waits for him to stop. Santiago shows a similar type of patience by waiting for the right time to reel the fish in.
"Then he will turn and swallow it, he thought. He did not say that because he knew that if you said a good thing it might not happen. He knew what a huge fish this was and he thought of him moving away in the darkness with the tuna held crosswise in his mouth. At that moment he felt him stop moving but the weight was still there. Then the weight increased and he gave more line. He tightened the pressure of his thumb and finger for a moment and the weight increased and was going straight down. 'He’s taken it,' he said. 'Now I’ll let him eat it well.' He let the line slip through his fingers while he reached down with his left hand and made fast the free end of the two reserve coils to the loop of the two reserve coils of the next line. Now he was ready. He had three forty-fathom coils of line in reserve now..." I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets
colder Most of us only care about money makin' Selfishness got us followin' the
wrong direction Wrong information always shown by the media Negative images
is the main criteria Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria Kids wanna act
like what they see in the cinema Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality Instead of spreading love we're
spreading animosity Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under That's the reason why
sometimes I'm feelin' down There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive 'til love is found Now ask yourself

Where is the love? Where is the love? Where is the love? Where is the love?
Father, Father, Father, help us Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin' Where is the love?

Sing with me y'all: One world, one world (We only got)
One world, one world (That's all we got) One world, one world
And something's wrong with it (Yeah) Something's wrong with it (Yeah)
Something's wrong with the wo-wo-world, yeah We only got
(One world, one world) That's all we got (One world, one world) Another trait found in Santiago is love. He demonstrates love for Manolin, and love for the ocean, especially the fish. I chose the song "Where is the Love?" by Black Eyed Peas because love is a hard trait to find in anyone these days. The songs emphasizes that fact and that we all should be able to love one another.
"He loved green turtles and hawk-bills with their elegance and speed and their great
value and he had a friendly contempt for the huge, stupid loggerheads, yellow in their
armour-plating, strange in their [36] love-making, and happily eating the Portuguese
men-of-war with their eyes shut."
"'Fish,' he said, 'I love you and respect you very much...'" Santiago demonstrates strength by repeatedly sustaining injuries, but still holds on to that fish. He cut his hand, then the other cramped. He could've given up, but he showed the amount of strength he had by continuing to endure these hardships. The quote perfectly describes Santiago's situation. He strength came from his struggles and his perserverance.
"He woke with the jerk of his right fist coming up against his face and the line burning out through his right hand. He had no feeling of his left hand but he braked all he could with his right and the line rushed out. Finally his left hand found the line and he leaned
back against the line and now it burned his back and his left hand, and his left hand was taking all the strain and cutting badly. He looked back at the coils of line and they were feeding smoothly." It just ain't the same, old ways have changed New days are strange, is the world
insane? If love and peace are so strong Why are there pieces of love that don't belong?
Nations droppin' bombs Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones With ongoin' sufferin'
as the youth die young So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone So I could ask myself really
what is goin' wrong In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin' in Makin' wrong
decisions, only visions of them dividends Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover The truth is kept secret, it's swept under
the rug If you never know truth then you never know love Where's the love, y'all, come
on (I don't know) Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know) Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin' Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin' Where is the love (Love)
Where is the love (The love)? Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)? Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)? Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love, the love, the love? What's wrong with the world, mama People livin' like they ain't got no mamas I think the whole
world addicted to the drama Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate And when you hate then you're bound to get
irate, yeah Madness is what you demonstrate And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin' Children hurt and you hear them cryin' Can you practice
what you preach And would you turn the other cheek Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above 'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love) Where is the love (The love) Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love, the love, the love Santiago demonstrates courage by defending the fish from some sharks. He wields the sharks off so they won't take his fish. The picture represents Santiago fighting a shark.
"One came, finally, against the head itself and he knew that it was over. He swung the tiller across the shark’s head where the jaws were caught in the heaviness of the fish’s head which would not tear. He swung it once and twice and again. He heard the tiller break and he lunged at the shark with the splintered butt. He felt it go in and knowing it was sharp he drove it in again. The shark let go and rolled away. That was the lastshark of the pack that came."
