  5. " they then briefly exchanged some addresses and admonitions. As for the resflections of the men, there was a great deal of rage in them. Perchance they might be formulated thus " if i am going to be drowned- if i am going to be dorwned, why in thename of the seven mad gods who rules the sea, was I allowed to come thus far and comtemplate sand and trees?"
    the open boat by crane
  6. " was i brought here merely to have my nose dragged away as i was about to nible the sacred cheese of life? it is preposterous. If this old ninny woman, fate, cannot do better than this, she should be deprived of the management of mens fortunes. she is an old hen who knows not her intention.

For it was certainly an abominable justice to drown a man who had worked so hard, so hard. the man felt it would be a crime most unnatural. other people had drowned at sea since galleys swarmed with painted sais, but still"

  8.

    the open boat by crane
  9. " then if there be no tangible thing to hoot he feels, perhaps, the desire to confront a personification and induldge in pleas, bowed to one knee, and with hands sipplicant, saying "yes but i love myself"

  10. " the correspondent wondered if non ever ascended the tall wind tower, and if then they never looked seaward. this tower was a giant, standing with its back to the plight of the ants. it represented in a degree, to the correspondednt, the serenity of nature amid the struggles of the individual- nature in the wind and natur in the vision of men."
    the open boat by crane
  11. " she did not seem cruel to them then, not beneficent, nor treacherous, nor wise. But she was indiffernect, flatly indifferent. It is perhaps, plausible that a man in this situation, impressed witht the unconcern of the universe, should see the innumerable flaws of his life and have them tast wickedly in his mind and wish for another chanve. A distiction between right and wrong seems absurdly clear to him, then, in this new ignorance of the grave edge and he understands that if her were given another opportunity he ouwl mend his conduct and his words and be better and brighter during an introduction or at tea"
    the open boat by crane
