A thought for Paris

May 7, 2008

Paris France

So you may or may not know that I am going to Paris for week starting next week and I am getting very excited about my trip, so much so that I thought I would look up some interesting Paris thoughts from famous people. Here is one from Hemingway:

“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.”

I love this thought because it really speaks to how being cultured and traveling is something that you carry with you for the rest of your life. Hemingway speaks to the vibrancy of Paris that no other city has and will become the benchmark at which you compare all other locations. I am excited to be a young person and visit Paris to have it help shape the way I see the world for the rest of my life. Maybe some day I will live there too 🙂
