Boulevards are Poems: Drink in Ideas



Balzac called the boulevards of Paris what the Grand Canal was to Venice, saying that whoever stepped onto them was lost to their charm: “on y boit des idees.’ (here people drink in ideas).

” 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 moveable feast.”

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

"Waiting is nothing but a guided dream"
