THE HISTORY OF CITIES

Make your heart like a lake. With a calm and quiet surface. A calm depth of kindness - Lao Tzu
'There is nothing that has struck me in my life like Venice. It is the wonder of the world. A damned ancient dream place, stupendous, immaterial, impossible, perverse, unreal. I arrived there in the evening, and the feeling of that evening and the bright following morning is now part of me for the rest of my existence."
The island holds the soul in its centre like a coin that time and wind cleaned leaving it pure as an intact, rustic almond cut into sapphire skin - Pablo Neruda

It was too much to believe it to be true; so complicated, so immense, so inexorable. and so beautiful, seen from afar: canyons of shadow and light, bursts of sunlight on crystal façades, and the pink twilight crowning the skyscrapers like backgroundless shadows draped over mighty abysses - Jack Kerouac
