On Ocean, Women and Moon

"................They spoke of her (ocean) as a contestant or a place or even an enemy. But the old man always thought of her as feminine and as something that gave or withheld great favours, and if she did wild or wicked things it was because she could not help them. The moon affects her as it does a woman, he thought".

(from Ernest Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea") - What a fine read this book is!
