"He had tied a bit of white worsted round his neck – Why? Where did he get it? Was it a badge – an ornament – a charm – a propitiatory act? Was there any idea at all connected with it?"

- from Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.

I like this because I think it really captures the experience of being somewhere foreign. I'll keep it here.
