Can't be defeated
The book of the old man and the sea is short but great. This book tells the story of a man fighting against fishes. The old man, Santiago, fight against fierce fishes all the time, although his weapons have broken, he has been exhausted and even his left hand is cramped. He gets a big fish, but it is eaten by few sharks, when he leaves. The book is delicate in description. Some verbs and psychological descriptions describe Santiago vividly, which show us a tough man who is old but strong and hopeful. Although there is no gorgeous rhetoric, no intentional rendering and generalization in this book, it can incisively depict the inner world of the characters and deeply attract us. If you can walk into Santiago's inner world, you will find his charm. In life, we may encounter all kinds of difficulties, but I hope we can think of Santiago and this sentence - A man can be destroyed but not defeated.
