A hand plucking the harpstrings, merging their twining chords. Wavewhite wedded words shimmering on the dim tide.”
James Joyce Quote: “Nothing stirred within his soul but a cold and cruel and loveless lust. His childhood was dead or lost and with it his soul capable of simple joys and he was drifting amid life like the barren shell of the moon.”
James Joyce Quote: “His heart danced upon her movements like a cork upon a tide.

James Joyce Quote: “There were so many different moods and impressions that he wished to express in verse. He felt them within him. He tried to weigh his soul to see if it was a poet’s soul.

James Joyce Quote: “Never back a woman you defend, never get quit of a friend on whom you depend, never make face to a foe till he’s rife and never get stuck to another man’s pfife.”
