Paris in Quotations

by Jaqueline Mitchell

Part of the In Quotations Series

Paris in Quotations Synopsis

Over the centuries, Paris has intrigued, revolted, scandalized and most of all captured the heart of many a visitor. For Dickens it is the 'most extraordinary place in the world', for Hazlitt, 'a beast of a city', and for French writers, the essence of civilization: 'I maintain that, for people of breeding, there is no salvation out of Paris.' claimed playwright Moliere. Describing the capital variously as a city of lovers, gastronomy, fashion and filth, myriad quotations - sometimes poetic, sometimes humorous and always fizzing with insight - are collected here.

Paris in Quotations Press Reviews

Literary society abounds with witty quips and poetic odes on the subject of Oxford. Oxford in Quotations gathers together a number of the most slyly funny and sentimentally beautiful quotations. -- Huffngton Post, on Oxford in Quotations
