Paris…or the modern world

I have formed a definition of Paris, attached an epithet to it, and I stand by that epithet. Namely: this is the most moral and most virtuous city in the whole world. What order! What prudence, what well defined and solidly established relationships; how secure and sharply delineated everything is; how content everyone is; how they struggle to convince themselves that they are content and completely happy; and how in the end, they have struggled to th e point where they really have convinced themselves that they are content and completely happy, and…and…they have stopped at that.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
