From Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness: "The brown current ran swiftly out of the heart of darkness, bearing us down towards the sea with twice the speed of our upward progress; and Kurtz's life was running swiftly, too, ebbing, ebbing out of his heart into the sea of inexorable time.
In Henrik Iben's play A Doll's House, Dr. Rank, a victim of tuberculosis of the spine, denounces the "inexorable retribution'' that innocent children must pay for their parent's excesses.
