Gratitude: The mariner was an ingrate who repaid the kindness of the albatross with utmost cruelty. By shooting the bird down with his crossbow, the mariner demonstrates one of the most unforgivable acts.  One has to be grateful even for the smallest of mercies. Even if one is incapable of repaying the act of kindness, one should never forget somebody’s benevolence.

Respect: Every creature, big or small, is a reflection of god.  The albatross was a manifestation of divine spirit.  It led the ship and the mariners out of the dangerous fog. Killing it was a sign of the mariner’s disrespect
