Quotes Evan Liked

Joseph Conrad
“We live in the flicker -- may it last as long as the old earth keeps rolling! But darkness was here yesterday.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad
“I don't like work--no man does--but I like what is in the work--the chance to find yourself. Your own reality--for yourself not for others--what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad
“The mind of man is capable of anything.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad
“I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable greyness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamour, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat, in a sickly atmostphere of tepid scepticism, without much belief in your own right, and still less in that of your adversary.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
