James Joyce

When the Irishman is found outside of Ireland in another environment, he very often becomes a respected man. The economic and intellectual conditions that prevail in his own country do not permit the development of individuality. No one who has any self-respect stays in Ireland, but flees afar as though from a country that has undergone the visitation of an angered Jove.More James Joyce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

We cannot give ourselves, it said: we are our own.More James Joyce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Alone, what did Bloom feel? The cold of interstellar space, thousands of degrees below freezing point or the absolute zero of Fahrenheit, Centigrade or RĂ©aumur: the incipient intimations of proximate dawn.More James Joyce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People trample over flowers, yet only to embrace a cactus.More James Joyce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
