“He told me it was First, by Van Cleef & Arpels.”
Elaine Sciolino, La Seduction: How the French Play the Game of Life

“Paris . . . is loath to surrender itself to people who are in a hurry; it belongs to the dreamers, to those capable of amusing themselves in its streets without regard to time when urgent business requires their presence elsewhere. —”
Elaine Sciolino, The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs

“An American writer who had come to visit France . . . asked quite naturally what it was that had kept me here so long. . . It was useless to answer him in words. I suggested instead that we take a stroll through the streets. —HENRY MILLER ON LIVING IN PARIS”
Elaine Sciolino, The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs
