    from which i'm trying to awake

    a small difference, but it sounds so much better.

    joyce is my favorite, but it's hard to quote him because the context is so important. for example, it's cool when he says "shut your eyes and see" because he's closing his eyes while he muses on the nature of visual and aural experience

    There is nothing in which deduction is so necessary as in religion," said he, leaning with his back against the shutters. "It can be built up as an exact science by the reasoner. Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But this rose is an extra. Its smell and its colour are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers.

    Sherlock Holmes quote from "The Naval Treaty" - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
