"His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe." The one in the Snow is from Romping through Dubliners, a fun pocket guide to James Joyce’s series of unfortunate events by At it Again!. It features a quote from the last of the original short stories, The Dead.
"The moon. Her nocturnal predominance: her luminary reflection: her potency over effluent refluent waters: her power to enamour, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: her dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible.” ― James Joyce, Ulysses
