The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Old Man and the Sea:

I caught a big one, but it got away.

My favorite Ernest Hemingway quote from the book:

"Now is not the time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is."

Questions to ponder while reading The Old Man and the Sea:

What is luck, anyway?

When do you throw in the towel?

My thoughts about The Old Man and the Sea:

My favorite fish tale.

Luck is such a random thing.

Sometimes, you just have to stick with it, even when you are going to lose.
