Everyone carries round an infinity.

If his thoughts are cupboard-size, nevertheless, his dreams open on to prairies, constellations…The most potent and awesome lesson of Joyce’s Ulysses and Finnegans Wake is that an eyelid, open or shut to let in the light of consciousness, the dark of sleep, can explore in every direction into memories which, through chains of association, would traverse the whole past and future of humanity.

The Struggle of the Modern, Stephen Spender
