French phrase of the day: "Respirer Paris, cela conserve l'âme."

Def: Breathing Paris preserves the soul.—Victor Hugo


  1. But not the lungs -- I hate it when I sneeze black gunk into my mouchoir!

  2. Ugh, that's a great point - great, but sad. Emissions here are the pits!

    But this is one of my favorite all-time quotes.

  3. I couldn't agree more. People might leave their hearts in SF, but I left part of my soul here my first visit. And unlike a horcrux (is that spelled right?)leaving pieces of you here and there does not make you invincible, but vulnerable.
