James Joyce quotes

James Joyce
Saying that a great genius is mad, while at the same time recognizing his artistic worth, is like saying that he had rheumatism or suffered from diabetes. Madness, in fact, is a medical term that can claim no more notice from the objective critic than he grants the charge of heresy raised by the theologian, or the charge of immorality raised by the police.

James Joyce
He comes into the world God knows how, walks on the water, gets out of his grave and goes up off the Hill of Howth. What drivel is this?

James Joyce
All things are inconstant except the faith in the soul, which changes all things and fills their inconstancy with light, but though I seem to be driven out of my country as a misbeliever I have found no man yet with a faith like mine.

James Joyce
You forget that the kingdom of heaven suffers violence: and the kingdom of heaven is like a woman.

James Joyce
A man's errors are his portals of discovery.

James Joyce
While you have a thing it can be taken from you... but when you give it, you have given it. No robber can take it from you. It is yours then for ever when you have given it. It will be yours always. That is to give.

James Joyce
Heart of my heart, were it more, More would be laid at your feet. Buck Mulligan, upon giving the old milk maid a coin

James Joyce
You cannot eat your cake and have it.
