A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916)

These James Joyce quotes are from Joyce's first novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.[1]

A priestridden Godforsaken race! (- Mr. Daedalus)

My love she’s handsome,
My love she’s bony:
She’s like good whisky
When it is new;
But when ’tis old
And growing cold
It fades and dies like
The mountain dew.

’Tis youth and folly
Makes young men marry,
So here, my love, I’ll
No longer stay.
What can’t be cured, sure,
Must be injured, sure,
So I’ll go to
Amerikay. (- Mr. Daedalus)

Come in and stay the night here. You’ve no call to be frightened. There’s no one in it but ourselves.... (- Young woman)

This race and this country and this life produced me, he said. I shall express myself as I am.(- Stephen)

My ancestors threw off their language and took another, Stephen said. They allowed a handful of foreigners to subject them. Do you fancy I am going to pay in my own life and person debts they made? What for? (- Stephen)

When the soul of a man is born in this country there are nets flung at it to hold it back from flight. You talk to me of nationality, language, religion. I shall try to fly by those nets. (- Stephen)

Do you know what Ireland is? asked Stephen with cold violence. Ireland is the old sow that eats her farrow. (- Stephen)

Do you like what you seen of me, straight hair and curly eyebrows? (- Girl passing out of Jacob's biscuit factory)
