4. "She was a Victorian girl; a girl of the days when men were hard and top-hatted and masculine and ruthless and girls were gentle and meek and did a great deal of sewing and looked after the poor and laid their tender napes beneath a husband's booted foot, and even if he brought home cabfuls of half-naked chorus girls and had them dance on the rich round mahogany dining-table (rosily reflecting great pearly hams and bums in its polished depths). Or, drunk to a frenzy, raped the kitchen-maid before the morning assembly of servants and children and her black silk-dressed self (gathered for prayers). Or forced her to stitch, on shirts, her fingers to rags to pay his gambling debts.Husbands were a force of nature or an act of God; like an earthquake or the dreaded consumption, to be borne with, to be meekly acquiesced to, to be impregnated by as frequently as Nature would allow. It took the mindless persistence, the dogged imbecility of the grey tides, to love a husband."

5. "Man filmu žurnalistika ir pavisam nesaistoša blakus nodarbošanas. Es nenododos tai ne tuvu ar tadu profesionalu pamatigumu ka daudzi no maniem biedriem. Kad diena pavadita pie rakstammašinas, ir gluži patikami vakara aizbraukt uz kadu studiju un noskatities izradi. Es skatos caurmera divas, tris filmas nedela. Ziema vairak, vasaras menešos mazak. Telpas ir ertas un majigas. Skatitaji parastie, pazistamie laudis. Izrada vienmer tikai vienu filmu – lieki nenogurdinot. Preses izrades šad tad apmekle aktieri vai režisori, apsestas pedeja rinda un vero žurnalistu reakciju. Tuvojoties godalgošanas laikam, Holivuda specigi sasparojas. Vairojas preses konferences, vairojas pirmizrades ar druzmu, starmetejiem, ar premjeru piedališanos, fotografu bariem, televizijas kameru bidišanos. Savs raibums un spirgtums zinotaja – verotaja gaitam piemit, un tikai loti retais žurnalists maina savu profesiju pret kadu citu, mierigaku darbu"

'Cause you know what, the musicians that made all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years were rrreal fucking high on drugs.

Author: Bill Hicks

I knew that George Orwell, in his second novel, A Clergyman's Daughter, published in 1935, had borrowed from Joyce for his nighttime scene in Trafalgar Square, where Deafie and Charlie and Snouter and Mr. Tallboys and The Kike and Mrs. Bendigo and the rest of the bums and losers keep up a barrage of song snatches, fractured prayers, curses, and crackpot reminiscences. But only on my most recent reading of Ulysses did I discover, in the middle of the long and intricate mock-Shakespeare scene at the National Library, the line 'Go to! You spent most of it in Georgina Johnson's bed, clergyman's daughter.' So now I think Orwell quarried his title from there, too."
