“There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: at home and in Paris.”
“That Paris exists and anyone could choose to live anywhere else in the world will always be a mystery to me.”
Adriana in “Midnight in Paris”
“Paris is a place in which we can forget ourselves, reinvent, expunge the dead weight of our past.”
“Paris is the city in which one loves to live.
Sometimes I think this is because it is the only city in the world
where you can step out of a railway station—the Gare D’Orsay—and see, simultaneously, the chief enchantments:
the Seine with its bridges and bookstalls,
the Tuileries Gardens,
the Place de la Concorde,
the beginning of the Champs Elysees—
nearly everything except the Luxembourg Gardens and the Palais Royal.
But what other city offers as much as you leave a train?”
― Margaret Anderson
“There is but one Paris and however hard living may be here, and if it became worse and harder even—the French air clears up the brain and does good—a world of good.”
Vincent van Gogh
