Second Quote
-" Yes, so as long as God is with me, I will not die, Amen. " (Martel 164)
Third quote
This is quote is significant because it is saying that fear is the only thing in life that holds you back from doing things. Fear is natural and is something that you can never get rid of. Fear destroys you from the inside therefore only fear is able to defeat life.
" I must say a word about fear. It is life's only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life." (Martel 178)
This ironic because Pi is hopeless and he is saying how he is all fine

by God, he would be dead.

The setting for chapter 48 - 58 takes place in 1977, somewhere in the Pacific Ocean where Pi is stranded with a Bengal tiger on a lifeboat and a raft made out of oars and life jackets.

The significance of the setting is that it creates most of the interactions and conflict within the story. If the circumstances were otherwise, Pi wouldn't have learned anything because he would try to run and hide but when you're in the middle of the ocean, there's no where to run.
