Charlie likes Miss.Kinnian very much. He finds himself confining in her and enjoying her presence. Later in the story he falls in love with her however he knows it can never be. When he becomes intelligent he finds it hard to communicate with her.
"You’ve got to be a little patient. You’re accomplishing in daysand weeks what it takes normal people to do in half a lifetime.That’s what makes it so amazing. You’re like a giant sponge now,soaking things in. Facts, figures, general knowledge. And soonyou’ll begin to connect them, too. You’ll see how the differentbranches of learning are related. There are many levels, Charlie,like steps on a giant ladder that take you up higher and higher tosee more and more of the world around you.“I can see only a little bit of that, Charlie, and I won’t go muchhigher than I am now, but you’ll keep climbing up and up, andsee more and more, and each step will open new worlds that younever even knew existed.”
