“Another kind of fatigue”

His face showed another kind of fatigue, the tormented weariness, the anger and the fear of a struggle against a thought, an idea – against something that cannot be grappled, that never rests – a shadow, a nothing, unconquerable and immortal, that preys upon life.

– Tales of Unrest, by Joseph Conrad
