SCYLLA & CHARYBDIS

"But a man who holds so tightly to what he calls his rights over what he calls his debts will hold tightly also to what he calls his rights over her whom he calls his wife. No sir smile neighbour shall covet his ox or his wife or his manservant or his maidservant or his jackass.
- Or his jennyass, Buck Mulligan antiphoned." (U9.788)
