The dreams of men, the seed of commonwealths, the germs of empires. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad The offing was barred by a black bank of clouds, and the tranquil water-way leading to the uttermost ends of the earth flowed somber under an overcast sky--seemed to lead into the heart of an immense darkness. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad "'The horror! The horror!" ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad The sea-reach of the Thames stretched before us like the beginning of an interminable waterway. In the offing the sea and the sky were welded together without a joint, and in the luminous space the tanned sails of the barges drifting up with the tide seemed to stand still in red clusters of canvas sharply peaked, with gleams of varnished sprits. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad I don't like work--no man does, but I like what is in the work, the chance to find yourself. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
