PARIS
[ Also see Cities Europe France ]

Good Americans when they die go to Paris.
      - attributed to Thomas Gold Appleton,
        by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. in "Autocrat of the Breakfast Table", VI

Paris, like every pretty woman, is subject to inexplicable whims of beauty and ugliness.
      - Honore de Balzac

When you've walked up the Rue la Paix at Paris,
  Been to the Louvre and the Tuileries,
    And to Versailles, although to go so far is
      A thing not quite consistent with your ease,
        And--but the mass of objects quite a bar is
          To my describing what the traveller sees.
            You who have ever been to Paris, know;
              And you who have not been to Paris--go!
      - John Ruskin, A Tour Through France
         (st. 12)

Prince, give praise to our French ladies
  For the sweet sound their speaking carries;
    'Twixt Rome and Cadiz many a maid is,
      But no good girl's lip out of Paris.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        Translation from Villon--Ballad of the Women of Paris
