"Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad
Voiceover by Chris Gould
"Imagine the growing regrets, the longing to escape, the powerless disgust, the surrender, the hate"
"They were men enough to face the darkness"
"We live as we dream - alone"
" Black shapes crouched, lay, sat between trees leaning against the trunk, clinging to the earth, half coming out, half-effaced within the dim light, in all the attitudes of pain, abandonment and despair"
"Another mine on the cliff went off, followed by a slight shudder of the soil under my feet. The work was going on. The work! And this was the place where some of the helpers had withdrawn to die."
"I've seen the devil of violence, and the devil of greed, and the devil of hot desire; but, by all the stars! there were strong, lusty, red-eyed devils, that swayed and drove men - men."
"But as I stood on this hillside, I foresaw that in the blinding sunshine of that land I would become acquainted with the flabby, pretending weak-eyed devil of a rapacious and pitiless folly."
"The word ivory rang in the air, was whispered, was sighed. You would think they were praying to it."
"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."
