The knights who said night

Habit is eternal return stripped of its originality
Before the habitual weakness of the knights, the habitual weakness written into the knights. 

All the later knights, writing in retrospect the errors of the earlier knights. And all the earlier knights waiting to erase the sentence written onto them by the later knights.

Those who come later, anticipating and warding off the known errors of before. And by looking to avoid earlier errors succeeding only in repeating them.

Dissimilarly, before the act, not action, but acts. Before the thief, not theft, but thieves. Before the rebel, not rebellion, but rebels. Before the traitor, traits. Before the addict, habits. And before the creditor and the debtor, the promises written into them.
