“The exceptional could not prevail against the material contacts which make one day resemble another. To-morrow would be like yesterday.” Joseph Conrad:”Under Western Eyes”

I am reminded of a line from “De ontaarde slapers”, by Ward Ruyslinck:

“Alles wat vandaag gaat gebeuren, zal hetzelfde zijn als wat gisteren gebeurd is. Het leven is eentonig.”

“Under Western Eyes”: Joseph Conrad

“The sense of life’s continuity depended on trifling bodily impressions. The trivialities of daily existence were an armour for the soul.”
