Lloyd Xie Mrs. Battenfeld Period 4 IBHOAS 23 May 2011 Final Project: The Quiet American -Lyrics and Literature The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much. -Heart of Darkness Although the quote applies to Belgian colonialism of the Congo, it clearly applies to French colonialism in Vietnam as well.

Swim in the lake of death Eaten by crocodiles So No-one saw, no-one cares. Can you see beyond this? Or does everything swamp your mind?

Think what to do before you act Bleed on the floor 'til you. .. Just try To think your Own thoughts.
