  2. But he never gave up “ tho’ I miscarried so much in my Design for large Pots, yet I made several smaller things with better success, such as little round pot, flat Dishes, Pitchers and Pipkins, and any things my hand turn’d to…”(P.73) -He was interested in possessions, power, and prestige: +He first called himseft the king od the island. +He tought Friday to call him “Master” even before teaching him the words for”yes” or “no”. .“surveying it with a secret Kind of Pleasure, (tho’ mixt with my other afflicting Thoughts) to think that this was all my own, that I was the King and Lord of all this country indefeasibly, and had a Right of Possession; and if I could convey it, I minght have it in Inheritance, as completely as any Lord of Mannor in England” (P.60) -He was an optimistic person with his lust for life: + He never droped out sadness, even when he was ill. “I had not been s miserable as to be left entirely destitute of all Comfort and Company..” .“I began to comfort myself as well as I could, and to set the good against the Evil that I might have something to distinguish my case from worse, and I stated it very impartially, like Debtor and Creditor, the comforts I enjoy’d, against the Miseries I suffer’d..” So he compared…… .“ I have not Clothes to cover me; But I am in a hot Climate, where if I had Clothes I could hardly wear them.” .“ Iam without any Defence or Means to resist any Violence of Man or Beast; But I am cast on an Island, where I see no wild Beasts to hurt me, as I saw on the Coast of Africa: And what if I had been Shipwreck’d there?” .“I have no Soul to speak to, or relieve me; But I God wonderfully sent the Ship in near enough ot the Shore, that I have gotten out so many necessary things as will either supply my Wants, or enable me to supply myself even as long as I live.”(p.38-39) .“ From this Moment I began to conclude in my Mind, that it was possible for me to be more happy in this forsaken Solitary Condition, than it was probable I should wver have been in any other Particular State in the 2
  3. World; and with this Thought I was going to give Thanks to God for bringing me to this Place.” (p.69) +He managed to make a fortune dispite a 28 years absence and event left his island with a nice coletion of gold -he noted on dating events the day he set his foots on this island. . “ After I had been there about Ten or Twelve Days, it came into my Thoughts, that I should lose my Reckoning of Time for want of Books and Pen and Ink, and should even forget the Sabbath Days from the working Days; but to prevent this I cut it with my Knife upon a large Post, in Capital Letters, and making it into a great Cross I set it up on the Shore where I first landed, I came on Shore here on the 30th of Sept. 1659.” (para.4,p37) -Crusoe was a religious man: he prayed before he did any work.: . “ In the Morning I took the Bible, and beginning a the New Testament, I began seriously to read it, and impos’d upon myself to read while every Morning and every Night, not tying my self to the Number of Chapters, but as long as my Thoughts shou'd engage me: It was not long after I set seriously to this Work, but I found my Heart more deeply and sincerely affected with the Wickedness of my past Life: The Impression of my Dream reviv'd, and the Words, All these Things have not brought thee to Repentance (para.5.p58) . “I threw down the Book, and with my Heart as well as my Hands lifted up to Heaven, in a Kind of Extasy of Joy, I cry'd out aloud, Jesus, thou Son of David, Jesus, thou exalted Prince and Saviour, give me Repentance!” . Once Crusoe discovered God, the next step was his attempt to force his newly-discovered God on Friday -His emotion life was so poor: .His diary carried detail account of his deeds but not his thought, his insistence on dating events made sense to a point, but it ultimately ended up seeming obsessive and irrelevant when he told us the date on which he ground his tools but neglected to tell us the date of a very important event like meeting Friday. 2.
