    Quote About Venice from Friedrich Nietzsche

    “At the bridge I stood
    lately in the brown night.
    From afar came a song:
    as a golden drop it welled
    over the quivering surface.
    Gondolas, lights, and music —
    drunken it swam out into the twilight.

    My soul, a stringed instrument,
    sang to itself, invisibly touched,
    a secret gondola song,
    quivering with iridescent happiness.
    — Did anyone listen to it?”

    Friedrich Nietzsche

    Quote about Venice by Lord Byron #3

    “I loved her from my boyhood,—she to me
    Was as a fairy city of the heart,
    Rising like water-columns from the sea,
    Of joy the sojourn and of wealth the mart;
    And Otway, Radcliffe, Schiller, Shakespeare’s art,
    Had stamped her image in me, and even so,
    Although I found her thus, we did not part,
    Perchance even dearer in her day of woe
    Than when she was a boast, a marvel, and a show”

    Lord Byron, Venice
