You asked: "If you only use one line, how is the thimble shown in the diagram attached?"
Assuming you mean the thimble as shown in the lower illustration, it would be attached the same way. To make the snubber from one line only, you would simply skip the step of splicing in the other line that makes up the bridle (not labeled).
