Quotations About / On: PARIS
Good Americans, when they die, go to Paris.
(Thomas Appleton (1812-1884), U.S. author. Quoted in The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table, ch. 6, Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. (1858).
The saying also found its way into Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, ch. 3 (1891) and A Woman of No Importance, act 1 (1893).)
I'd like to see Paris before I die. Philadelphia will do.
(Mae West, U.S. screenwriter, W.C. Fields, and Edward Cline. Cuthbert Twillie (W.C. Fields), My Little Chickadee, response to the hangman who asks if Twillie has any last wish (1940).
In a 1925 Vanity Fair article, Fields suggested his epitaph should read: "Here lies W.C. Fields. I would rather be living in Philadelphia.")
The country is provincial; it becomes ridiculous when it tries to ape Paris.
(Honoré De Balzac (1799-1850), French novelist. In The Works of Honoré de Balzac, vol. IV, trans. by George Saintsbury (1971). Narrator, in Pierrette, originally named Pierrette Lorrain, in Le Siècle (1840); included in the Comédie humaine as a Scène de la Vie de Province (1843).)
