Watt by Beckett

Episode 10
‘Watt’s stay in Mr Knott’s house was less agreeable, on this account, than it would have been, if such incidents had been unknown, or his attitude towards them less anxious, that is to say, if Mr Watt’s house had been another house, or Watt another man.
But if Watt was sometimes unsuccessful, and sometimes successful, as in the affair of the Galls father and son, in foistering a meaning there where no meaning appeared, he was most often neither the one, or the other.
Watt learned towards the end of his stay in Mr Knott’s house to accept that nothing had happened, that a nothing had happened, learned to bear it and even, in a shy way, to like it.’
