A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life. It is a universe whole and entire unto herself, hollowed and fashioned by history with her towering buildings, her massive cathedrals, her grand boulevards and ancient winding medieval streets–as vast and indestructible as nature itself. All is embraced by her, by her volatile and enchanted populace thronging the galleries, the theaters, the cafes, giving birth over and over to genius and sanctity, philosophy and war, frivolity and the finest art. Even the majestic trees that grace and shelter her streets are attuned to her–and the waters of the Seine, contain and beautiful as they wind through her heart; so that the earth on that spot, so shaped by blood and consciousness, had ceased to be the earth and had become Paris.
