Polish-born novelist Joseph Conrad, a master of English prose, died on this day in 1924.
"About feelings people really know nothing," Conrad wrote. "We talk with indignation or enthusiasm, we talk about oppression, cruelty, crime, devotion, self-sacrifice, virtue, and we know nothing real beyond the words."
