Joseph Conrad
1857 - 1924

Author of Heart of Darkness and other novels

The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.

from Heart of Darkness
You shall judge a man by his foes as well as by his friends.

1900 - from Lord Jim
The scrupulous and the just, the noble, humane and devoted natures; the unselfish and the intelligent may begin a movement -- but it passes away from them ... Afterwards comes the turn of all the pretentious intellectual failures of the time.
