‘At the beginning of my imprisonment, however, what I found most difficult was that I had the thoughts of a free man… But that just lasted a few months. Afterwards, I had only the thoughts of a prisoner… I often thought that if I’d been forced to live inside the hollow trunk of a dead tree, with nothing to do except look up at the sky flowering above my head, I would have eventually got used to that as well.’
