London Quote of the Month

4 Jun

“The man who has stood upon the Acropolis/And looked down over Attica, or he/Who has sailed where picturesque Constantinople is,/Or seen Timbuctoo … May not think much of London’s first appearance–/But ask him what he thinks of it a year hence?”
—Lord Byron, Don Juan, 1819-1824
