James Joyce tribute

As today is the 81st anniversary of the passing of the great James Joyce, and seeing that I live in Dublin, I thought I would type a quote from his book “Dubliners”.

I purchased my copy of “Dubliners” whilst on holiday in the library shop in Irvine, Orange County, California of all places.

“Her name sprang to my lips at moments in strange prayers and praises which I myself did not understand. My eyes were often full of tears (I could not tell why) and at times a flood from my heart seemed to pour itself out into my bosom. I thought little of the future. I did not know whether I would ever speak to her or not or, if I spoke to her, how I could tell her of my confused adoration.”

Inspiring author James Joyce was born here in Dublin, Ireland on 2nd February 1882 and passed away in Zurich, Switzerland on this day, 81 years ago 13th January 1941.
