Joseph Conrad
“Like a running blaze on a plain, like a flash of lightning in the clouds. We live in the flicker.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad
“And perhaps in this is the whole difference; perhaps all the wisdom, and all truth, and all sincerity, are just compressed into that inappreciable moment of time in which we step over the threshold of the invisible.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad
“It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream--making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream-sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is of the very essence of dreams...No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence--that which makes its truth, its meaning--its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream-alone...”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad
“We live as we dream - alone. While the dream disappears, the life continues painfully.”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

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