Quotes for IG captions about Paris
As you might already know, I love proposing quotes about Paris for IG captions. I think that literature is one of the best ways to get to know the culture of a nation, and sometimes even a city. Also, books about Paris often propose the perspective of a stranger. Americans in Paris who have written or said something about the city do make you understand something more about the magic atmosphere you live in Paris.
Some of the quotes I propose are by writers or philosophers, and they surely have a deeper sense. The others may appear shallower, but they also convey characteristics and peculiar impressions of the city.
I always say that I prefer shorter puns to pair to my shots for Instagram about Paris – follow me at @parisrentapartments! – but, I have to admit that quotes are the best for posts with something ‘more’.
