To Knight, it all felt impossible. His engagement with the written word might have been the closest he could come to genuine human encounters. The stretch of days between thieving raids allowed him to tumble into the pages, and if he felt transported he could float in bookworld, undisturbed, for as long as he pleased.

    Unapofikia hatua ya kuwa na kila kitu katika maisha, unapokuwa umefanya kila kitu ulichotamani kufanya katika maisha, unakuwa na bahari nzima ndani ya tone ambalo ni wewe. Unaridhika. Wewe si tone tena ndani ya bahari, wewe ni bahari ndani ya tone. Kinachobaki baada ya hapo ni kusaidia jamii iliyosaidia kukulea ulipokuwa mdogo, kuacha alama katika dunia kabla na baada ya wewe kuondoka, bila kujali watu watasema nini juu ya maisha yako.
