Correspondence #4

It is when we try to grapple with another man's intimate need that we perceive how incomprehensible, how wavering and misty are the beings that share with us the sight of the stars and the warmth of the sun.

Joseph Conrad
Lord Jim

One never knows a human being, but one occasionally ceases to feel that one does not know him.

Andre Malraux
Man's Fate
