    A quick question: да и я сам

    Hi everyone!

    I would like to know if "and moreover" is a good translation for да и я сам in the next sentence. I also have problemы with the words in bold, is it "what he might"??

    "да и я сам ничего не узнаю о нём: чего он хочет, что может, зачем живёт..."

    Спасибо!

    moreover could be translated as более того, помимо того
    but да я и сам in this context means But I myself

    да и я сам ничего не узнаю о нём: чего он хочет, что может, зачем живёт

    Though I myself wont know anything (more) about him: what does he want, what he might, what for does he live.
    Я так думаю.

    what he wants, what he can do, what he is living for / lives for.
