Heart of Darkness
"I said with something like despair in my heart, but bowing my head before the faith that was in her [the Intended], before that great and saving illusion that shone with an unearthly glow in the darkness, in the triumphant darkness from which I could not have defended her—from which I could not even defend myself." (3.62)
"She [the Intended] said suddenly very low, 'He died as he lived.'
'His end,' said I, with dull anger stirring in me, 'was in every way worthy of his life.'" (3.73-74)
[Marlow to the Intended]: "'The last word he pronounced was - your name.'" (3.85)
