James Joyce Quote: “He turned back the way he had come, the rhythm of the engine pounding in his ears. He began to doubt the reality of what memory told him.

He could hear nothing: the night was perfectly silent. He listened again: perfectly silent. He felt that he was alone.”

His days and works and thoughts could make no atonement for him, the fountains of sanctifying grace having ceased to refresh his soul.”
