The Nigger of the Narcissus, by Joseph Conrad

http://etext.library.adelaide.edu.au/c/conrad/joseph/c75nn/


“The ship, a fragment detached from the earth, went on lonely and swift like a small planet. Round her the abysses of sky and sea met in an unattainable frontier. A great circular solitude moved with her, ever changing and ever the same, always monotonous and always imposing. Now and then another wandering white speck, burdened with life, appeared far off — disappeared; intent on its own destiny. The sun looked upon her all day, and every morning rose with a burning, round stare of undying curiosity.”

{ Joseph Conrad }

Conrad knows; he writes of the pain of going at it alone.
But more importantly, he also writes of pushing onto something just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in.
