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

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist, short story writer, poet, teacher, and literary critic. He contributed to the modernist avant-garde and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in a variety of literary styles, most famously stream of consciousness.

    Te diré lo que haré y lo que no haré. No serviré a eso en lo que ya no creo, ya sea como mi hogar, mi patria o mi iglesia: y trataré de expresarme en algún modo de vida o arte tan libremente como pueda y tan completamente como pueda. Puedo, usando para mi defensa las únicas armas que me permito usar - el silencio, el exilio y la astucia.

    saya akan memberi tahu Anda apa yang akan saya lakukan dan apa yang tidak akan saya lakukan. saya tidak akan melayani apa yang saya tidak percaya lagi, apakah itu menyebut dirinya rumah saya, tanah air saya, atau gereja saya: dan saya akan mencoba untuk mengekspresikan diri saya dalam beberapa mode kehidupan atau seni sebebas yang saya bisa dan seutuhnya seperti saya bisa, menggunakan untuk pertahanan saya satu-satunya lengan saya membiarkan diri saya menggunakan - diam, pengasingan dan licik.
