“Suddenly, Walter was aware of all the things he did not know. There were hundreds--thousands--of books in the world, and he had read only a handful of them. One day he would die, a myriad of books unread, his knowledge of the world incomplete.”
Barbara Wersba, Walter: The Story of a Rat

“Dear Miss Pomeroy, I am saddened by the things I do not know. There are hundreds--thousands--of books in the world and I will never be able to read all of them.
I am old.
Walter”
Barbara Wersba, Walter: The Story of a Rat
