Quote #10

But to me the future is still black and blank – is a vast ignorance, lit at a few casual places by the memory of his story. (Epilogue.1)

The unnamed narrator concludes with this remark about the lesson of the Time Traveller's story, which isn't very much of a lesson at all, but which might be a helpful reminder to us that there's a lot out there that remains unknown. Though the Time Traveller has seen some pretty significant things, there might be much more that he missed. Or maybe – just maybe – taking the long view isn't always that helpful when you have to live in the here and now.
