James Joyce on Irresponsibility and Art

Top of the morning to you! (Or bottom of the evening, depending on when I get this posted.)

On St. Patrick's Day, whether Irish or not, many writers will be tempted to put aside their work to patron the Irish pubs and dip into green beer and Guinness. Don't be disheartened. Remember what Irish novelist James Joyce said: "Irresponsibility is part of the pleasure of all art."

For more on James Joyce, visit his center.

Or, if you'd prefer, visit his pub.
