Geometry and Anguish

"The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extrahuman architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish. At first glance, the rhythm may be confused with gaiety, but when you look more closely at the mechanism of social life and the painful  slavery of both men and machines, you see that it is nothing but a kind of typical, empty anguish that makes even crime and gangs forgivable means of escape."
Federico Garcia Lorca, The Columbia Dictionary of Quotations

"Strolling through New York makes me feel good. I feel like I'm leaving part of me behind and like I'm walking toward my destiny, toward a new self. I don't know whether it's because I've seen that city in a million movies, or because it's part of my imagination, but all these streets, these smells, all these different things please me and put me in a good mood."
