Started to re-read Heart of Darkness and came across this great quote for my work in progress: Takers & Keepers.

He has to live in the midst of the incomprehensible, which is also detestable. And it has a fascination, too, that goes to work upon him. The fascination of the abomination—you know. Imagine the growing regrets, the longing to escape, the powerless disgust, the surrender, the hate.
Heart of Darkness
Joseph Conrad
