It is a wonderful fantasy to think that one could be meet up with James Joyce on Grafton Street, Dublin. Incredible sure, but such is the purpose of a fantasy.
Though a belated celebration of yesterday’s June 16th Blooms Day…it serves as a good excuse to remember some favorite quotes from Ulysses:
We were always loyal to lost causes, the professor said. Success for us is the dark of the intellect and of the imagination.
To learn one must be humble. But life is the great teacher
“The movements which work revolutions in the world are born out of the dreams and visions in a peasant’s heart on the hillside.”

My husband asked me the other day if I had read Joyce. I said I had not that Ulysses had always intimidated me.
Thank you John, Gavin & Wyatt from a peasant whose Irish name means sitting on a hillside overlooking the valley. Also thanks for a hunkerdown book suggestion!
