By millions of years, time winged onward through eternity, to the end - the end, of which, in the old-earth days, I had thought remotely, and in hazily speculative fashion. And now, it was approaching in a manner of which none had ever dreamed.

— William Hope Hodgson

The most revealing William Hope Hodgson quotes that will transform you to a better person

The world was held in a savage gloom - cold and intolerable.

Outside, all was quiet - quiet! From the dark room behind me, came the occasional, soft thud of falling matter - fragments of rotting stone. So time passed, and night grasped the world, wrapping it in wrappings of impenetrable blackness.


Impossible, that blind the mind, and looked out into the unknown.
