“All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.”
Christopher Morley
Cities & Countries by Roman Payne
“This was how it was with travel: one city gives you gifts, another robs you. One gives you the heart’s affections, the other destroys your soul. Cities and countries are as alive, as feeling, as fickle and uncertain as people. Their degrees of love and devotion are as varying as with any human relation. Just as one is good, another is bad.”
Roman Payne
