Almanac: Joseph Conrad on ennui

"There are men here and there to whom the whole of life is like an after-dinner hour with a cigar; easy, pleasant, empty, perhaps enlivened by some fable of strife to be forgotten--before the end is told--even if there happens to be any end to it."

Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim
