NEVER GIVE UP
"Can you imagine how it will be, Finn, one day to open a hatch and climb out of darkness, out of Incarceron? To see the stars? To see the sun?"...Finn was silent..."I've seen it."...Gildas laughed sourly. "Only in visions, fool boy. Only in dreams."
Finn knows that he has seen the outside world, even if Gildas doubts him. He doesn't give up and believe in what Gildas has says, because he knows that he has seen it. Finn doesn't let anyone changed his mind.
"Do you know what I'm escaping from? From not knowing myself. Having this darkness inside me, this emptiness. I can't live with that. Don't leave me here, Claudia!"
Finn is taking to his friend, Claudia, who lives in the outside world. She told him that there was no way to escape from Incarceron. He tells her that he can't live anymore in Incarceron any longer and never gives up on trying to get out.
