Paris
 
Good Americans when they die go to Paris.
        Attributed to Thos. Appleton by O. W. Holmes—Autocrat of the Breakfast Table. VI.
  1
When you’ve walked up the Rue la Paix at Paris,
  Been to the Louvre and the Tuileries,
And to Versailles, although to go so far is
  A thing not quite consistent with your ease,
And—but the mass of objects quite a bar is
  To my describing what the traveller sees.
You who have ever been to Paris, know;
And you who have not been to Paris—go!
        Ruskin—A Tour Through France. St. 12.
  2
Prince, give praise to our French ladies
  For the sweet sound their speaking carries;
’Twixt Rome and Cadiz many a maid is,
  But no good girl’s lip out of Paris.
        Swinburne—Translation from Villon. Ballad of the Women of Paris.
