Michael Finkel
“His chief form of entertainment was reading. The last moments he was in a cabin were usually spent scanning bookshelves and nightstands. The life inside a book always felt welcoming to Knight. It pressed no demands on him, while the world of actual human interactions was so complex. Conversations between people can move like tennis games, swift and unpredictable. There are constant subtle visual and verbal cues, there's innuendo, sarcasm, body language, tone. Everyone occasionally fumbles an encounter, a victim of social clumsiness. It's part of being human.
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.”
Michael Finkel, The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit

“Commitment to ourselves, our families, and our business is paramount to being successful. Human should be committed to rolling out great products, services and initiatives that impact those personal and professionals encounters which cross our path.”

“Being the commander of a Ruminarii war vessel meant that he had risen to the rank by means of assassination and ruthlessness and was therefore implicitly distrusted by the Tidhii Mah’k’hai (Naval Command, that is The Queen Of Suth Herself.) He was expected to mete out, in generous portions, brutality to conquered subjects and to act swiftly and mercilessly in dealing with alien encounters. In short, he was expected to be a bad example.”
Christina Engela, Black Sunrise

“Or maybe our paths will diverge someday, taking us in separate directions, making our relationship a brief but beautiful spot in a series of unforgettable encounters. Either way, it will be a journey worth taking. Either way, it will be a love story.”
Crystal Cestari, The Best Kind of Magic

Esther Kleinhage
“Der scheinbar einzige Gast außer mir war ein junger Punker mit Hund. Er leistete mir beim Essen Gesellschaft, ernährte sich selbst aber eher von Flüssigem. Das Gespräch mit ihm war interessant, wenn ich ihm und er mir folgen konnte. Oft hatte ich allerdings das Gefühl, wir redeten einfach aneinander vorbei.”
Esther Kleinhage, Mit der Sonne Richtung Westen: Begegnungen auf dem Jakobsweg
