Сначала ослепительные искры, потом радуги и темные пятна заходили в его глазах; он поспешил опять нырнуть, открыл в воде глаза и увидел что-то мутно-зеленое, похожее на небо в лунную ночь.

Those words are from Engels, whom bourgeois economists accuse of having painted the condition of the workers in the pre-capitalist period in too bright colours and given too gloomy a description of their condition in the period of capitalism.
Так говорит Энгельс, которого буржуазные экономисты обвиняют в том, что он слишком радужными красками изображал положение рабочих в докапиталистический период и слишком мрачно описал то же положение в период капитализма.
