21 Inspiring Quotes About Paris

I had to spend my first time on the European continent in Paris. I studied French from grades 7 – 12 and even earned a minor in college! I wish I would have had the time to study abroad when I was younger, but I’m grateful that I was able to experience Paris in the winter of 2018. (Not to mention I was able to find such a cheap flight from the States!)

There’s something magical about wandering the halls of the Louvre and warming up with a café au lait during a light snowfall.

From the art to the food, the fashion and awe-inspiring architecture, the City of Lights has a little something for everyone.

Here are 21 quotes to inspire you to experience one of my favorite European cities:

“America is my country and Paris is my hometown.” – Gertrude Stein

“There is but one Paris, and however hard living may be here, and if it became worse and harder even—the French air clears up the brain and does good – a world of good.” – Vincent Van Gogh

  • 12/10 recommend renting out a house with a group of Americans, Colombians, and French people you recently met in the countryside
  • 🇨🇴 Jump in that water be free, come south of the border with me 🇨🇴
  • Climb to the top was worth it (mainly for the views and the ice cream) 🌎
  • Here’s a #TravelTuesday tip: GET ✈️ ENOUGH ✈️ SLEEP ✈️! I can sleep on planes, trains, automobiles, and have even slept through tornadoes and one Earth quake. (And through a riot in the occupied part of Israel...😬) When changing time zones, adjust as quickly as you can. A 5+ hour difference may not seem like a big deal, but it can catch up to you quickly if you’re not used to it. 😴
  • You're engaged! Congratulations! So...now what? ⠀
⠀
The first few days (or weeks) can feel totally overwhelming, but they don't have to be. I asked Kyle for his advice for folks who are newly engaged and they lined up EXACTLY with my list. (Read them all on my blog #linkinbio)

What advice would you give to newly engaged couples? ❤️💍#WeddingWednesday
  • According to a 2015 survey, only 29% of Americans have ever been abroad. 29%!!! ⠀
⠀
Europeans are lucky – most countries there are about the size of our individual states and public transportation and quick flights make weekend trips such a breeze. Although the U.S. is HUGE, there is a lot more of this world to see. ⠀

Is one of your New Year's Resolutions to get your passport?  Visit a new country? A new continent? ⠀

Take my advice: pick a location, buy the ticket, and just GO. 🌎✈️

  • "Twice in the 1930s, censors in Washington, D.C., sent letters to the American Institute for Economic Research demanding that we shut down our presses. Twice our founder E.C. Harwood refused to do so. Twice government backed down.⠀
⠀
What were we doing wrong? We had published articles taking issue with New Deal economic policy. Nothing more. In those days, however, dissent was rare, first because it was dangerous and second because there was such an overwhelming intellectual consensus in favor of the policies of Franklin Roosevelt.⠀
⠀
Why were they so worried about some small newsletters and books being printed by AIER? Because ideas are ultimately more powerful than armies. Ideas can turn history on a dime, and in defiance of even the world’s most fierce states." ~ Jeffrey Tucker⠀

Beyond proud that we published 33 works, old and new, in 2019. The best is yet to come. 📚❤️
