"Here is New York"

"There are roughly three New Yorks. There is the New York of the man or woman who was born there, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size, its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter - the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spart out each night. Third, there is the New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something...
Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness, natives give it solidity and continuity, but the settles give it passion."

Jolie citation d'EB White, auteur americain a qui l'on doit entre autres Stuart Little et Charlotte's Web.
