“You have asked me what I would do and what I would not do. I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defenSe the only arms I allow myself to use— silence, exile, and cunning.”
― James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
