America is my country and Paris is my hometown.


-- Gertrude Stein

Paris, a city of gaieties and pleasures, where four-fifths of the inhabitants die of grief.


-- Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort

If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.


-- Ernest Hemingway

Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and, in this, hasn't changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.


-- John Berger

The first thing that strikes a visitor to Paris is a taxi.


-- Fred Allen

I wouldn't attach too much importance to these student riots. I remember when I was a student at the Sorbonne in Paris, I used to go out and riot occasionally.


-- John Foster Dulles

With an apple I will astonish Paris.


-- Paul Cezanne

In Paris, one is always reminded of being a foreigner. If you park your car wrong, it is not the fact that it's on the sidewalk that matters, but the fact that you speak with an accent.


-- Roman Polanski

When good Americans die they go to Paris.


--Oscar Wilde
