"All the air things wear"

"The air without is impregnated with raindew moisture, life essence celestial, glistening on Dublin stone there under starshiny coelum.  God's air, the Allfather's air, scintillant circumambient cessile air."

James Joyce, Ulysses, Episode 14 (Ulysses:  the corrected text, ed. Hans Walter Gabler with Wolfhard Steppe and Claus Melchior (New York, NY:  Random House, 1986), 345, ll. 1407-1409).
