Heart of Darkness
"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)
"'No!' she [the Intended] cried. 'It's impossible that all this should be lost — that such a life should be sacrificed to leave nothing—but sorrow. You know what vast plans he had. I knew of them, too - I could not perhaps understand - but others knew of them. Something must remain. His words, at least, have not died.'" (3.68)
