Paris Quotes, Quotations, and Sayings
4 Paris Quotes
When you've walked up the Rue la Paix at Paris,
Been to the Louvre and the Tuileries,
And to Versailles, although to go so far is
A thing not quite consistent with your ease,
And--but the mass of objects quite a bar is
To my describing what the traveller sees.
You who have ever been to Paris, know;
And you who have not been to Paris--go!

Prince, give praise to our French ladies
For the sweet sound their speaking carries;
'Twixt Rome and Cadiz many a maid is,
But no good girl's lip out of Paris.
