2.”Paris is complete … Everyone who sees Paris thinks that has seen the foundation of the entire history of heaven and stars. Paris is synonymous with the universe, Paris has no boundaries … Paris can be stupid if like to be, sometimes indulge to himself such a luxury … Paris is not only big, it’s huge. Why is that? Because it dares to be … “(Victor Hugo” Les Misérables “)
3. Paris is always a good idea (Audrey Hepburn).
4. Quiet, at the foot of the bridge, descends into the water, and high, with black roofs on black roofs, rises to the heavens. All the woods. Rain, infinite rain stinks over it, as if it is all bound to the tannic, the wet and the water that it does the whole world. The drill, it’s rocking, defying. Lose its hardness and it all turns into shades that rock in the rain. It is so endless, and it is as easy as if it were made of maps-Milos Crnjanski wrote about Paris in his travelogues “Letters from Paris”.
5.Since ancient times Paris has been called a city of love, and air has the aroma of romance – the story of Cazablanca with Hemfrey Bogart in the role of Rick Blaine and Ingrid Bergman in Ilsa Lund’s contribution. When the moment comes that they are forced to break, Rick tells Ilsa to recall the time when they fall in love with the sentence: “We will always have Paris.”
6.The lyrics of the song “Paris at night” by Jacques Prévert: “Three matches I rush in the night, the first to see your face, the other to see your eyes, the last to see your mouth. Then the eclipse I remember all while I’m lucky and getting you in my arms. “
