The Man who Laughs - Victor Hugo

This quote was added by malevolarky
Silence reigned in the vessel. No cry from the child to the men - no farewell from the men to the child. There was on both sides a mute acceptance of the widening distance between them. It was like a separation of ghosts on the banks of the Styx. The child, as if nailed to the rock, which the high tide was beginning to bathe, watched the departing bark. It seemed as if he realized his position. What did he realize? Darkness.
