Julien Green
“Paris is a city that might well be spoken of in the plural, as the Greeks used to speak of Athens, for there are many Parises, and the tourists’ Paris is only superficially related to the Paris of the Parisians. The foreigner driving through Paris from one museum to another is quite oblivious to the presence of a world he brushes past without seeing. Until you have wasted time in a city, you cannot pretend to know it well. The soul of a big city is not to be grasped so easily; in order to make contact with it, you have to have been bored, you have to have suffered a bit in those places that contain it. Anyone can get hold of a guide and tick off all the monuments, but within the very confines of of Paris there is another city as difficult to access as Timbuktu once was.”
Julien Green, Paris

“Whatever we do, don't let's have any running. Especially not before supper; and not too soon after it neither.”
C.S. Lewis, Prince Caspian

“Year by year I see trees disappearing. It's no good people saying they replant: you never find the same number. Each time there are fewer of them to raise their young arms towards the sun once again or shake their tresses in the wind.”
Julien Green, Paris

Julien Green
“Paris est une ville dont on pourrait parler au pluriel, comme les Grecs l’a fait avec Athène. Car il y a beaucoup de Paris et celui des touristes n'a qu'une relation superficielle avec celui des Parisiens. Un étranger qui traverse Paris dans en voiture ou en autobus et qui va d'un musée à l’autre n'a aucune idée de ce monde qu'il ne voit pas, bien qu'il soit dans elle.
Personne ne peut affirmer de connaître bien une ville s'il n'a pas perdu son temps dans elle. L'âme d'une grande ville ne laisse pas se comprendre légèrement. Pour qu’on se familiarise vraiment avec elle, on doit dans elle, on a dû s’ennuyer et pâtir un peu dans elle. Bien sûr, chacun peut s'acheter un guide de la ville et constater que tous les monuments indiqués sont là. Mais, à l'intérieur de la frontière de Paris, une ville qui est accessible autant dure que Tombouctou l’était autrefois se cache.”
Julien Green, Paris

“What we give the world, we have borrowed from no one; it is ours. It may be taken from us, stolen from us, but imitated? - never.”
