This is my second book for the week. I choose The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway in Bahasa Indonesia version. I choose this book because it's one of the best book in the literature world. And it tickles me to read the meaning behind the story.
"Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think what you can do with that there is."
That is my favorite quote from this title.
This book told me to keep my faith until I get what I want. Willing to try, not only harder, but also smarter, to get everything. And stay focus to my goals. Try not to give up everytime there's a anxiety or hurricane of life comes.
It also a very touching story that human needs somebody else in life. A friend in need, is a friend indeed. It is told that we can't do everything alone. Like the old man, Santiago, needs his best friend, the younger boy, Manolin, to help him catching bigger fishes and to pull the fishing lines.
Also, most important thing from this book is, every hard work needs blessings from God. And faith that He will make a way to fulfill our needs.
In the end, we can enjoy whatever results we get and being happy and proud about it.
It's really inspiring and wonderful story from Ernest Hemingway. I recommend you to read the book, especially if you need an inspiring story about how to gather up the spirit to try again after failing over and over again. I really hope you can find the spirit from this book.
That's all for today. We'll see you again soon! Keep enjoying our book club!
Thank you for reading!
