"Does nobody understand?"[edit]

From my understanding, Joyce didn't actually say this. Nor is the quote cited. Quinnova (talk) 07:54, 8 May 2018 (UTC)


Removed quote that was not by Joyce - actually by Oscar Wilde.

"Let+Ireland+die+for+me." add this


This was recently removed through an anon IP, and I agree with the removal from the article, but think them notable enough to place here, despite being rather low in quotability. IF anyone does desire to restore any of them to the article they should probably be given some context and quoted in the section for Finnegans Wake. ~ Kalki·· 19:52, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
