Hemingway was one of the most outstanding novelists in America in the twentieth century. His remarkable work, The Old Man and the Sea, is a famous realistic novel. The purpose of this paper is to find factors to success in today’s society by analyzing the characters of the old man and the boy, etc. The author insists that the old man certainly succeeds in spirit, the spirit of Never Say Die when facing with setbacks and the adventure in the unknown things, which still has educational significance so far. However, no one can deny that the old man fails in the physical aspects. Real victory must contain both material and spiritual victory. Usually, positive attitude towards life and flexible way of doing things are more beneficial to humanity’s survival and development.
