Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Light? Or just another lost angel... City of Night?
― Jim Morrison

All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.
― Christopher Morley

With cities, it is as with dreams: everything imaginable can be dreamed, but even the most unexpected dream is a rebus that conceals a desire or, its reverse, a fear. Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.
― Italo Calvino
